# Electricity minister Kgosientsho Ramokgopa says Eskom has lost a cluster of units from different power stations across the country, resulting in the escalation of load-shedding.

Updating the country on the implementation of the Energy Action Plan yesterday, Ramokgopa also cited the unplanned capacity loss factor as another key contributor to the escalation of load-shedding:
