However, improved generation capacity, with breakdowns reduced to 12,168MW and planned maintenance at 6,484MW, has led to a suspension of load-shedding until 16:00 on Sunday.

After 16:00 on Sunday, stage 2 load-shedding will be reinstated, lasting until 05:00 on Monday. Eskom will announce the schedule for the following week on Sunday and communicate any significant changes.

Here is the load-shedding schedule for October 14-15, 2023:

Date Day Daytime (05:00–16:00) Evening peak (16:00–05:00)
14 October Saturday Suspended
15 October Sunday Suspended Stage 2

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.
