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.
