No load shedding likely today says Eskom, but risk remains high for the week
Eskom COO, Jan Oberholzer explains to Kieno Kammies what sparked the latest warning of possible load shedding and how the embattled SOE is trying to recover from crippling debt and mismanagement.
Is Eskom sticking with its latest 'high risk' warning for load shedding?
For the time being, we're sticking with that. This week has been a tough week. We, unfortunately, lost quite a few of our generating units due to unpredictability as well as unreliability.Jan Oberholzer, COO - Eskom
I sat with my colleagues this morning in the control rooms and they gave me feedback that today it looks fine provided there are no other units lost..Jan Oberholzer, COO - Eskom
He says the remainder of the week remains on the same alert.
