Eskom Implements Reduced Load-Shedding for the Weekend — See the Schedule

Eskom Implements Reduced Load-Shedding: Eskom will temporarily halt load-shedding for 22 hours during daytime hours over the weekend. However, stage 2 and stage 3 power cuts will be in effect during the evenings and early mornings.

This reduction in Eskom load-shedding is attributed to improved generation performance and an anticipated decrease in weekend demand. Stage 3 load-shedding will continue from 16:00 to 05:00 on Saturday, as previously communicated.

Subsequently, load-shedding will be suspended from 05:00 to 16:00 on Saturday and Sunday. To address evening peak demand, stage 2 load-shedding will be implemented from 16:00 to 05:00 on both Saturday and Sunday.

As of the statement, Eskom reported breakdowns totaling 14,266MW of generating capacity, with 5,388MW out of service for planned maintenance. Over the past 24 hours, one generating unit at each of the Arnot, Duvha, Ingula, and Vanderkloof power stations underwent repairs. During the same period, a generating unit at the Hendrina Power Station was restored to service.

Eskom’s forecast for Friday’s evening peak demand is 27,606MW, and they urge the public to reduce consumption to help mitigate the required level of load-shedding.

Below is the weekend’s planned load-shedding schedule:

Saturday

    • Stage 3: 16:00 to 05:00
    • Load-Shedding Suspended: 05:00 to 16:00
    • Stage 2: 16:00 to 05:00

Sunday

    • Stage 2: 16:00 to 05:00
    • Load-Shedding Suspended: 05:00 to 16:00

Load-shedding for 29 September to 1 October 2023

Date Day Daytime (05:00–16:00) Evening Peak (16:00–05:00)

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.
