Stage 3 load shedding will be implemented from 9am on Saturday until 5am on Monday, says Eskom.
The announcement followed an earlier alert on Friday evening that stage 2 would be in force over the weekend.
"Despite some units having returned to service last night, stage 3 load shedding will be implemented from 09:00 today to accommodate the shortage of capacity to replenish emergency reserves."
