Rolling blackouts are on the cards from 12:00 to 22:00.

Early this morning, Eskom announced that they are implementing load shedding from 12:00 to 22:00 today to reserve generating capacity. SA is on level 2 load shedding after 10 generation units broke down at 7 power stations during the past 48 hours. In their statement, they warned that the blackouts could last for the entire week.
