Eskom Ongoing Reduction of Load-Shedding

Eskom Ongoing Reduction of Load-Shedding: Over the weekend, South African residents experienced a significant reduction in Eskom load-shedding, thanks in part to the restoration of service at Kusile 3 Power Station.

Eskom, the national power utility, reported that electricity demand was lower than expected. Here’s a breakdown of the load-shedding schedule for Monday, October 2.

Reduced Load-Shedding:

The return of Kusile 3 Power Station has led to a marked decrease in load-shedding, bringing relief to residents who have faced frequent power cuts.

Lower Electricity Demand:

Eskom noted that electricity demand was below projections, contributing to the decreased need for load-shedding.

Load-Shedding Schedule for Monday:

  • Stage two load-shedding will be implemented from 16:00 today until 05:00 on Tuesday.

Specific Substations and Load-Shedding Times:

  • Buffer Substation: 17:00 – 19:30
  • Kwa-Guqa Substation: No load-shedding
  • Ga-Nala Substation: No load-shedding
  • Doornpoort and Rietspruit Substations: No load-shedding
  • Grobler Substation: 16:00 – 17:30
  • Clewer, Ogies, and Phola Substations: 19:00 – 21:30


While load-shedding has been notably reduced for the time being, Eskom continues to monitor the situation and will provide updates as needed to ensure a stable power supply.

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.
