This is true regardless of the government’s plans to name an electricity minister who will focus exclusively on reducing energy cuts.

Stage eight, according to energy analyst Ruse Moleshe, would be disastrous.

She said that higher levels of load-shedding meant that the supply of energy was no longer sufficient to fulfill demand, and that higher levels would follow.

“For Stage 8, for example, there are around 8,000 megawatts that won’t be available, which is the size of more than three worldwide power grids.

Eskom, the largest energy supplier in South Africa, is taking proactive measures to guarantee that its customers will continue to receive electricity. Eskom is getting ready to introduce load shedding schedules above Stage 8, the highest stage of load shedding, due to an increase in demand in recent months.

This proactive step aims to maintain the electrical supply during periods of high demand while allowing for the required upkeep and repairs. In order to increase supply, Eskom is also looking into other options, such as expanding its generation capacity, which will help to lessen the need for load shedding in the future.

Also, Eskom is attempting to raise consumer knowledge of the value of energy saving and the necessity to limit electricity usage during times of high demand periods.

There are how many levels of load shedding?
The severity of the load-shedding tiers depends on how much generation capacity is needed to meet the nation’s electrical energy demand; stage 1 is the least serious and stage 8 is the most serious.

He says that load shedding is anticipated to increase in the winter and that there is a 50% chance we will have stage eight load shedding starting in July.
