Load-shedding escalated to stage 4 due to the loss of more generation units

# Eskom has escalated load-shedding to stage four until further notice. The power utility has attributed this to two additional generating units being taken out of service for repairs, and the need to replenish the pumped storage dams, which are required to meet the morning and evening peak loads. Eskom says station managers are continuing to work diligently to ensure that the two-thousand-473 megawatts of generating capacity are returned to service by Monday as planned.
