Eskom Announces Load-Shedding Until Sunday

Eskom, South Africa’s national power utility, has announced the need for scheduled power cuts, known as load-shedding, to facilitate the replenishment of pump storage dams. This decision aims to address the energy supply challenges faced by the country. Below, we provide a breakdown of Eskom’s load-shedding plan.

Eskom Announces Load-Shedding Until Sunday

Load-Shedding Schedule

Eskom has outlined a load-shedding schedule, specifying different stages and durations of power cuts:

  • Currently until 05:00 Tomorrow (Stage 2): As of the current moment, South Africa is experiencing Stage 2 load-shedding, indicating a substantial reduction in electricity supply. This stage will continue until 05:00 the following day.
  • 05:00 Tomorrow until 05:00 on Sunday (Stage 1): Starting at 05:00 tomorrow, the power utility will transition to Stage 1 load-shedding, which involves a relatively lower reduction in electricity supply. This stage will persist until 05:00 on Sunday.
  • Sunday 05:00 – 16:00: No Load-Shedding: On Sunday, from 05:00 to 16:00, Eskom has announced a temporary suspension of load-shedding. During this period, electricity supply will be stable without any scheduled interruptions.
  • Sunday 16:00 – Monday 05:00 (Stage 1): Following the suspension, Eskom will resume load-shedding at Stage 1 from 16:00 on Sunday until 05:00 on Monday. This stage involves a modest reduction in electricity supply.

Updates and Future Outlook

Eskom has committed to providing updates as significant changes occur in the load-shedding situation. Additionally, a load-shedding outlook for the upcoming week will be published on Sunday.

This load-shedding schedule and the efforts to replenish pump storage dams are part of Eskom’s ongoing measures to manage South Africa’s electricity supply and demand effectively. Load-shedding remains a critical tool in addressing energy shortages in the country.

Conclusion

Eskom’s decision to implement load-shedding for pump storage dam replenishment underscores the ongoing challenges faced by South Africa’s energy sector.

It reflects the utility’s commitment to balancing electricity supply and demand while ensuring the reliability and stability of the power grid. Residents and businesses in South Africa should stay informed about the load-shedding schedule and any updates provided by Eskom

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.
