Eskom Plans to Reduce Load Shedding Over the Weekend – Check the Updated Schedule

Eskom, the power utility in South Africa, has provided a load shedding schedule for the upcoming weekend. The goal is to ease Eskom load shedding and even suspend it temporarily on Sunday. Eskom Load shedding is being implemented to replenish pumped storage dams and manage electricity supply. Here’s the breakdown of the schedule:

Eskom Plans to Reduce Load Shedding Over the Weekend – Check the Updated Schedule

Friday, 6 October:

  • Stage 2 load shedding until 00:00 (midnight)

Saturday, 7 October:

  • Stage 2 load shedding from 00:00 to 05:00
  • Stage 1 load shedding from 05:00 to 00:00 (midnight)

Sunday, 8 October:

  • Stage 1 load shedding from 00:00 to 05:00
  • Load shedding suspended from 05:00 to 16:00 (temporary relief)
  • Stage 1 load shedding from 16:00 to 00:00 (midnight)

Monday, 9 October:

  • Stage 1 load shedding from 00:00 to 05:00
  • Further stages and times to be determined

Eskom has been working to reduce load shedding stages this week, thanks to improved generating capacity and lower demand. However, it’s crucial to note that Eskom’s load shedding plans are based on “best-case scenarios,” and historical performance suggests that they often fall short of these targets.

Factors like maintenance challenges and the return of units to service can impact the actual load shedding experienced by South Africans. Therefore, the situation remains uncertain, and load shedding can vary from none to severe (up to stage 6).

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.
