Eskom Introduction of New Load Shedding Schedules



Eskom Introduction of New Load Shedding Schedules

In a media statement released on November 7, Eskom officially announced a significant transformation in the load shedding blocks and schedules applicable to all customers, which includes municipal entities.

This development is a direct consequence of Eskom’s decision to delegate load-shedding operations to City Power for a substantial portion of the areas it supplies.

The impact of this transition is widespread, affecting both Eskom and municipal customers served directly by the power utility in the Gauteng province.

City Power, as the entity tasked with executing these load-shedding operations, has specified that certain areas will continue to experience load shedding.

These exceptions are attributed to the intricacies of network configuration and technical complexities, which may require specific load-shedding plans.

Crucially, both Eskom and City Power have affirmed their unwavering commitment to ensuring the security of electricity supply.

Furthermore, they have expressed their dedication to complying with distribution licensing conditions.

This commitment extends to the strategic goal of diminishing the load requirements during different stages of load shedding.

The ultimate aim is to safeguard the integrity of the national grid, a paramount consideration in the management of load shedding operations.

This transition underscores the evolving landscape of load shedding and highlights the critical role played by both Eskom and municipal entities in delivering stable electricity supply while navigating the complexities of distribution.

The changes in load shedding blocks and schedules reflect a collective effort to maintain a reliable and secure energy infrastructure for all customers affected by load shedding.

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.
