Eskom Suspends Load Shedding Until Tuesday

Eskom, the South African power utility, has decided to extend the suspension of load shedding, much to the delight of South Africans who are celebrating the Springboks’ victory in the Rugby World Cup. This extension follows Eskom’s initial announcement on October 19 that it would suspend load shedding until Monday.

Improved Generation Performance and Emergency Reserves

The continued improvement in Eskom’s generation fleet performance and the full recovery of emergency reserves have come as a welcome surprise to the nation.

As a result, load shedding will remain suspended, and it is set to resume only on Tuesday at 4 pm.

New Load Shedding Schedule

Eskom’s new load shedding schedule includes the implementation of Stage 1 load shedding on Tuesday from 4 pm until 5 am on Wednesday.

Subsequently, load shedding will be suspended from 5 am until 4 pm, followed by Stage 1 load shedding from 4 pm until 5 am on Thursday.

This pattern will continue daily until further notice.

Current Status

At present, breakdowns in Eskom’s generation capacity amount to 13,559MW, and planned maintenance is at 4,765MW. The demand forecast for the evening peak is 25,054MW.

Additionally, Eskom recently confirmed that Kusile Power Station Unit 1 is back in service, a month and a half ahead of the expected timeline, which has further contributed to the improved power situation in the country.

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.
