South Africa’s state-owned power utility has implemented power cuts on 100 days in 2022, with more to come.
Eskom Holdings SOC Ltd. ramped up outages to so-called stage-4 load shedding, where it removes 4,000 megawatts from the grid, on Tuesday after three generation units at its Kendal coal-fired station about 100 kilometers (62 miles) east of Johannesburg tripped. The utility expects to reduce this to 2,000 megawatts from Thursday until the end of the week. That will bring the total days of outages in the third quarter to 40.
