Eskom Relaxes Weekend Power Cuts Due to Improved Generation Capacity and Reduced Demand

Eskom Relaxes Weekend Power Cuts: Eskom, the national power utility, has provided an update on its load shedding plan for the upcoming weekend. The announcement states that there will be a temporary suspension of power cuts on both Saturday and Sunday, with no Eskom load shedding between 5 am and 4 pm on those days.

Stage 2 Load Shedding During Evenings and Nights

However, starting from 4 pm on both Saturday and Sunday, Eskom will reinstate stage 2 load shedding, which will continue until 5 am the following day. This decision is attributed to an expected reduction in electricity demand during these periods and improvements in the overall generation capacity.

Friday’s Load Shedding Remains at Stage 3

It’s important to note that stage 3 load shedding will still be in effect on Friday, as previously communicated by Eskom spokesperson Daphne Mokwena. This means that load shedding will occur from 4 pm to 5 am on Saturday, consistent with the existing schedule.

Eskom continues to monitor and adjust load shedding as necessary to maintain grid stability and manage electricity supply and demand effectively.

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.
