Eskom Seeks Additional Funding for Grid Expansion

Eskom Seeks Additional Funding for Grid Expansion. Kgosientsho Ramokgopa, Eskom’s Minister of Electricity, said the company needs more funding to expand its power grid.

His comments on Sunday were in response to a media request regarding the progress in implementing the government’s energy plan. He added that more needs to be done to improve the grid’s reliability.

Neither the Eskom balance sheet nor the speed at which we need to expand on the transmission side to meet the needs is capable of financing the kind of expansion that is required. We need to think creatively about what will be done to address that, as the Eskom balance will not be sufficient to do so.

Supply stability for Gauteng

The Gauteng government and Ramokgopa’s team are coordinating to ensure a stable electricity supply. According to him, since it is the country’s economic heartland, the province accounts for the highest amount of electricity demand.

Approximately 25% of the load is accounted for by Gauteng. Therefore, interventions in Gauteng are extremely important. It is important to pay attention to Gauteng’s weather situation.

A cloudy day with rising demand impairs the ability to take advantage of PD. It affects our ability to provide the megawatts because we are also drawing from renewables when calculating the total amount of megawatts available.”

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.
