Eskom Load-Shedding Schedule: No Power Cuts Until Tuesday Evening

Eskom has released its updated load-shedding schedule for the upcoming week, which includes a welcome relief from power cuts until Tuesday at 16:00.

Eskom Load-Shedding Schedule: No Power Cuts Until Tuesday Evening

This change in the load-shedding schedule is attributed to the improved performance of Eskom’s generation fleet and the full recovery of emergency reserves.

Date Day Daytime (05:00–16:00) Evening Peak (16:00–05:00)
22 October 2023 Sunday Suspended Suspended
23 October 2023 Monday Suspended Suspended
24 October 2023 Tuesday Suspended Stage 1
25 October 2023 Wednesday Suspended Stage 1

Reasons for Lower Load-Shedding Levels

Eskom attributes the reduced level of load-shedding to the “continued improved generation fleet performance” and the full recovery of emergency reserves.

Currently, breakdowns in the power supply amount to 13,559MW, with an additional 4,765MW unavailable due to planned maintenance.

Eskom has communicated that it will keep the public informed of any significant changes in the situation.

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.

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.
