Eskom Extends Load Shedding Suspension: Updated Schedule

Eskom has announced a continued suspension of load shedding until Sunday afternoon. This measure aims to provide temporary relief to electricity consumers during the weekend. Here’s an overview of the schedule.

Eskom Extends Load Shedding Suspension: Updated Schedule

Saturday, 14 October:

  • 05:00 to 00:00: Load shedding suspended

Sunday, 15 October:

  • 00:00 to 16:00: Load shedding suspended
  • 16:00 to 00:00: Stage 2 load shedding

Monday, 16 October:

  • 00:00 to 05:00: Stage 2 load shedding

This respite from load shedding is made possible by the decreased breakdowns in Eskom’s generation fleet, which currently stand at 12,168 MW. Planned maintenance activities have contributed to this improved performance by increasing the efficiency and reliability of the units.

Electricity Minister Kgosientsho Ramokgopa noted that longer periods on load for these units have positively impacted their operation.

To access load shedding schedules and receive notifications, Eskom provides online resources, including the Eskom load shedding website, and the EskomSePush app for smartphones.

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.
