Eskom Extends Load Shedding Suspension to Monday: Improved Generation Performance

Eskom, the South African power utility, has once again extended the suspension of load shedding, allowing for an extra day of uninterrupted power supply across the country. This decision is attributed to the improved performance of Eskom’s generation fleet and the full recovery of its emergency reserves.

New Load Shedding Schedule

The schedule for the upcoming days is as follows:

  • Sunday, 22 October 2023: Load shedding suspended
  • Monday, 23 October 2023: Load shedding suspended
  • Tuesday, 24 October 2023: Load shedding suspended until 16:00, then Stage 1 load shedding from 16:00 to 05:00
  • Wednesday, 25 October 2023: Stage 1 load shedding from 00:00 to 05:00, suspended from 05:00 to 16:00, and Stage 1 load shedding from 16:00 to 00:00

This pattern will be repeated daily until further notice, providing a balance between power supply and demand.

Breakdowns in Eskom’s system currently amount to 13,559MW, with an additional 4,765MW of generation capacity undergoing planned maintenance.

Eskom is constantly monitoring the situation, and any significant changes in the power supply will be communicated promptly.

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.
