City Power to Take Control of Load Shedding Operations in Johannesburg

Eskom, the state-owned power utility in South Africa, is set to hand over the management of load shedding operations to City Power in most of the areas it supplies, starting on November 6, 2023.

The transition is aimed at optimizing load shedding management for more efficient power distribution.

Areas in Roodepoort, Randburg, Midrand, and Alexandra supplied by City Power will continue to be managed by Eskom due to network complexities.

City Power’s spokesperson, Amanda Qithi, highlighted that the transfer would lead to changes in the existing load shedding blocks and schedules, affecting the daily routines of affected residents.

Even during stages 5 and higher of load shedding, areas served by City Power will adhere to a two-hour load shedding schedule.

The commitment to maintaining a stable electricity supply during this transition is a priority for both entities.

Revised load shedding blocks and schedules will be available on the websites of both Eskom and City Power starting on November 6, 2023, to help residents prepare and manage potential impacts on their daily lives.

Both City Power and Eskom will continue to collaborate with communities and stakeholders to ensure reliable electricity delivery, recognizing the essential nature of electricity as a service.

Monday, 10 July 2023: Stage 4 loadshedding is being implemented until 5:00 a.m. on Tuesday due to increased demand. On Wednesday, Stage 4 loadshedding will be implemented from 14:00 until 05:00, followed by Stage 2 loadshedding from 05:00 to 14:00.

There will be a daily implementation of this pattern until further notice. A new update will be published if any significant changes are made.

As of now, 14 252MW of generating capacity has been damaged by breakdowns, while 4 118MW of generating capacity has been out of service for planned maintenance.

As of today, Duvha, Hendrina, Kendal, Kriel, Matimba and Medupi power stations have each reactivated a generating unit.

The Arnot and Tutuka power stations each had a generation unit out of service due to a breakdown during the same period.

Tutuka Power Station’s current capacity constraints are due to the delay in resuming two generating units. In order to restore service to the generating units, Eskom teams are working around the clock.

Members of the public are being encouraged to use electricity sparingly and efficiently, and we want to thank the people who do heed the call. During the period between 17:00 and 21:00, please turn off your geysers and pool pumps as this reduces demand, alleviates pressure on the power system, and contributes to fewer stages of load-shedding.
