Stage 2 Loadshedding
Eskom announced on Thursday that it would implement Stage 2 loadshedding on Friday from 21:00 until 05:00 on Saturday to replenish emergency generation reserves. It is the first time since 22 July that Eskom implements loadshedding again. Luckily for Ermelo residents, it will only affect them for half an hour on Friday evening because loadshedding will only start at 21:00. Ermelo's schedule for Stage 2: Friday, 8 October 2021 19:00-21:30 Saturday, 9 October 2021 01:00-03:30. Eskom did warn in the statement, "should the emergency generation reserves not recover sufficiently, it may be necessary to continue loadshedding during the day and over the weekend. Eskom will communicate promptly should there be any significant changes to the power system."
