Eskom reduces load-shedding – with a warning



Eskom reduces load-shedding - with a warning

Eskom reduces load-shedding – with a warning. A reduction in load-shedding is expected to take effect on Tuesday, according to Eskom.

“The fourth stage of load-shedding will take place starting today at 16:00 and continuing until 05:00 on Tuesday,” it said.

“Next, Stage 1 load-shedding will commence at 5:00 and end at 16:00, followed by Stage 3 load-shedding at 5:00 and ending at 16:00.

“The number of breakdowns has been reduced to 15,747MW, while planned maintenance has affected 1,946MW of generating capacity,” Eskom said.

“ Each of the power stations at Kriel, Lethabo, Majuba, Matla, and Arnot have restored a generating unit since Friday.

As a result of the delay in returning two generating units each to service at Tutuka and Kendal, the current capacity constraint will be exacerbated in the near future.

“The state-owned power utility said that its teams are working tirelessly to restore service to these generating units.

In anticipation of the weekend, Eskom has warned of increased electricity demand.

“In order to help reduce demand, we appeal to the public to turn off non-essential appliances,” it stated.

“Please accept our thanks for those who are using electricity sparingly and efficiently, including turning off geysers and pool pumps between 17:00 and 21:00, as this reduces demand, relieves the strain on the power system, and contributes to a lower level of load-shedding..”

This Pattern Will Continue Daily Until Further Notice

Eskom Loadshedding Today

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.
