Eskom Increases Load Shedding for the Coming Week - Updated Schedule

Eskom, South Africa’s power utility, has decided to reinstate load shedding due to the need to replenish emergency reserves before anticipated cold weather. The nine days of stable electricity supply had led to the depletion of these reserves.

As a result, Eskom will implement Stage 2 load shedding from 16:00 today until 16:00 on Monday.

Subsequently, Eskom will continue with Stage 2 and 3 load shedding until further notice.

Reserve Replenishment Schedule:

  • Sunday, 29 October: Stage 2 from 16:00 to 00:00.
  • Monday, 30 October: Stage 2 from 00:00 to 05:00, Stage 2 from 05:00 to 16:00, Stage 3 from 16:00 to 00:00.
  • Tuesday, 31 October: Stage 3 from 00:00 to 05:00, Stage 2 from 05:00 to 16:00, Stage 3 from 16:00 to 00:00.

Eskom is closely monitoring the power system and will communicate any changes in the load shedding schedule if required. Presently, Eskom has 5,950MW of generation capacity offline for planned maintenance, and 16,150MW is unavailable due to breakdowns.

Teams are working to restore additional generating units.

Eskom anticipates a peak demand of 27,557MW on Monday evening, with an evening peak demand forecast of 24,824MW.

The utility urges the public to continue reducing demand by switching off non-essential appliances and commends those who conserve electricity effectively.

The EskomSePush app is available for smartphone users to receive load shedding notifications and schedule details for their areas.

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.
