Eskom Modifies Load-Shedding Timetable

Eskom has announced a load-shedding schedule for November 3, 2023, and until further notice. The plan involves three stages, and it is essential for residents to be aware of the timings and stages to manage their electricity usage effectively.

Stage 3 Load-Shedding

  • Starting on Friday, November 3, at 16:00.
  • Continues until Saturday, November 4, at 05:00.

Stage 1 Load-Shedding

  • Begins on Saturday, November 4, at 05:00.
  • Ends at 16:00 on the same day.

Stage 2 Load-Shedding

  • Commences at 16:00 on Saturday, November 4.
  • Persists until 05:00 on Sunday, November 5.

This cycle of load-shedding, alternating between Stage 1 and Stage 2, will continue daily until Eskom provides further updates.

Eskom is keeping a close watch on the power system and will communicate any changes promptly.

Currently, 4,783MW of generating capacity is offline for planned maintenance, and an additional 17,507MW is unavailable due to breakdowns.

Over the past 24 hours, several generating units were taken offline for repairs, while others were restored.

The evening peak demand for Friday, November 3, 2023, is estimated to reach 26,002MW. Please refer to the table below for the detailed load-shedding schedule.


Residents are encouraged to stay informed and adapt their electricity usage during these scheduled load-shedding times. This helps reduce strain on the power system and may prevent further escalations in load-shedding stages.

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.
