Eskom Extends Load-Shedding Suspension for the Weekend

Eskom’s Weekend Load-Shedding: Stage 2 Suspended, Stage 4 Expected to Continue. Eskom has decided not to proceed with Eskom stage 2 load-shedding on Saturday evening and early Sunday morning.

Instead, the utility will continue the suspension of load-shedding until 16:00 on Sunday, October 1, 2023. After that, stage 2 load-shedding will resume from 16:00 on Sunday until 05:00 on Monday, October 2, 2023, as previously communicated.

This decision comes as a response to lower-than-anticipated demand and sustained improvements in generation performance, allowing Eskom to provide some relief to consumers.

Eskom will keep a vigilant eye on the power system and will communicate any significant changes if they arise. According to Eskom’s recent State of the System update, the utility anticipates maintaining the highest level of load-shedding at stage 4 until the end of March 2024.

This improvement is attributed to the planned return of three generating units at Kusile in October and November, along with the synchronization of a fourth unit at the same plant in December.

However, Eskom also foresees the need for load-shedding on at least 116 days between September 2023 and March 2024, provided unplanned breakdowns remain at or below 14,500MW.

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.
