Eskom Extends Load Shedding Suspension



Eskom Extends Load Shedding Suspension

Eskom, South Africa’s power utility, has prolonged the suspension of load shedding. This extension is attributed to the availability of sufficient generation capacity, including emergency reserves.

Units Returning to Service

Additionally, the return of certain power generation units to service has contributed to the extended suspension.

Public’s Role in Maintaining the Suspension

Eskom is appealing to the public to play a part in ensuring the continued suspension of load shedding. This involves reducing energy demand during specific hours.

Request to Reduce Demand

The power utility requests the public to lower their energy consumption from 17:00 to 21:00 by switching off geysers and pool pumps. Such efforts can alleviate pressure on the power system and aid in sustaining the load shedding suspension.

Monitoring and Future Outlook

Eskom reassures that it will continue to monitor the power system and provide a week-ahead outlook on Sunday, keeping the public informed.

Extended Suspension Schedule

The schedule for the extended load shedding suspension includes specific hours when power cuts will remain suspended until Sunday.

Communication of Changes

Eskom will promptly communicate any significant changes that may affect the status of load shedding.

Access to Schedules

For access to additional load shedding schedules, Eskom provides a platform,

Smartphone App

Users with smartphones can download the EskomSePush app, which offers push notifications about load shedding implementation and the specific times when their area will experience power cuts.

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.

Eskom Loadshedding Today

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.
