Eskom Extends Load Shedding Suspension Until Monday Afternoon

Eskom Extends Load Shedding Suspension: In a welcome announcement, Eskom has revealed that South Africans can enjoy an uninterrupted Sunday without the prospect of state-imposed power outages.

Eskom Extends Load Shedding Suspension Until Monday Afternoon

Eskom stated that it will continue to suspend load shedding until Monday afternoon, attributing this relief to several factors, including the return to service of Kusile 3, improved generation performance, and lower-than-anticipated electricity demand.

The suspension will remain in effect until 4 pm on Monday, after which Stage 2 load shedding will be implemented.

Eskom assured that it will vigilantly monitor the power system and promptly communicate any changes regarding load shedding. Concurrently, Minister in the Presidency for Electricity, Dr. Kgosientsho Ramokgopa, is set to host his weekly media briefing, providing updates on the progress of the Energy Action Plan.

Dr. Ramokgopa’s recent statements underscore the urgency of expanding South Africa’s national grid. To realize this expansion, he emphasized the need for over R100 billion in funding by the next financial year and a substantial investment exceeding R250 billion for the transmission grid’s expansion over the next decade.

This financing challenge was discussed during the South African Transmission Financing Seminar, where Dr. Ramokgopa engaged with prominent business leaders at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.

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.
