Eskom has achieved a significant milestone in its efforts to combat load shedding by bringing Kusile Unit 1 back into service ahead of schedule.
Eskom Kusile Power Station Unit 1 Returns Ahead of Schedule
The additional 800MW generated by Unit 1 complements the 800MW consistently delivered by Unit 3, significantly bolstering the available electricity generation capacity.
This development indicates that Eskom is making substantial progress toward reducing and eventually ending load shedding.
Eskom’s recent accomplishments suggest the possibility of improved load shedding conditions for South African residents.
While load shedding may continue during the warmer months, the outlook for late 2023 and early 2024 appears promising, with the potential for reduced levels of load shedding.
