South Africa May Limit Power Cuts to Second-Lowest Level Next Week

South Africa’s state-owned power utility Eskom Holdings SOC Ltd. may limit electricity rationing to 2,000 megawatts at a time from Saturday through the end of next week.

So-called Stage 3 loadshedding, where 3,000 megawatts are cut from the grid, will be applied until midnight Friday and from Saturday Stage 2 cuts will be implemented from 4pm until midnight every day, Eskom said on Twitter. The planned schedule is dependent on returning generation units to service, the utility said.
