Eskom Extends Load-Shedding Relief Suspends Outages Until Sunday

Eskom’s decision to suspend load-shedding until 4pm on Sunday offers the nation uninterrupted viewing of the Springboks’ game against New Zealand.

The suspension is due to several factors, including sufficient generation capacity, emergency reserves, expected unit returns, and anticipated lower weekend demand.

Eskom will continue to monitor the power system and publish a week-ahead outlook on Sunday.

The decision follows the recent announcement of load-shedding suspension until Thursday afternoon, reflecting positive developments in Eskom’s operations.

Eskom launched the cross-border standard offer program (CBSOP) for short-term energy purchases from neighboring countries and cross-border Independent Power Producers (IPPs).

The CBSOP is expected to add 1,000 MW to the national electricity grid, significantly reducing capacity constraints and addressing load-shedding issues.

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.
