Eskom has implement on-and-off loadshedding since Monday, 31 May.
However, the latest batch is a continuous implementation from 10am on 2 June until 10pm on 4 June.
The state-owned company says that power cuts are needed due to further breakdowns at the Majuba and Arnot power stations.
Meanwhile, there have also been delays in returning generating units to service at the Arnot and Tutuka power stations.
Emergency reserves have also been depleted as a result of attempts to avoid loadshedding during the day, according to Eskom.
The City of Cape Town will switch between Stage 1 and Stage 2 loadshedding for its municipality-supplied customers.
