Eskom Load Shedding Update for the Upcoming Week – Revised Schedule

Eskom, the power utility, is making changes to its load shedding plans due to improved generating capacity.

Eskom Load Shedding Update for the Upcoming Week – Revised Schedule

Eskom credits improved generating capacity for the change in load shedding plans. This update aims to minimize disruptions to electricity supply during the week.

Load Shedding Schedule:

Sunday, November 5:

  • Stage 1 until 16:00
  • Stage 2 from 16:00 to 00:00

Monday, November 6:

  • Stage 2 from 00:00 to 05:00
  • Load shedding suspended from 05:00 to 16:00
  • Stage 2 from 16:00 to 00:00

Tuesday, November 7:

  • Stage 2 from 00:00 to 05:00
  • Load shedding suspended from 05:00 to 16:00
  • Stage 2 from 16:00 to 00:00

Evening Peak Load Shedding:

Stage 2 load shedding will continue from 16:00 to 05:00 the next day, and this pattern will persist until further updates are provided.

Analyst Insights:

According to independent energy analyst Pieter Jordaan, Eskom’s recent success in managing load shedding is partially attributed to lower demand and a significant increase in diesel consumption.

However, Eskom’s temporary suspension of load shedding after nine days without it was not sustainable and required a return to blackouts.

This revised schedule reflects Eskom’s efforts to balance electricity supply with demand and minimize disruptions while providing insights from an energy analyst.

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.
