Eskom Suspends Weekend Load Shedding

Eskom, South Africa’s state-owned power utility, has made an encouraging announcement to suspend load shedding for an extended period over the coming weekend. This decision is based on the utility’s positive assessment of its generation fleet’s performance and an anticipated reduction in electricity demand during the weekend.

Eskom Suspends Weekend Load Shedding

Weekend Load Shedding Suspension:

Eskom has decided to suspend load shedding for the entire weekend, extending from Friday to Sunday, providing a significant reprieve to the public.

Generation Fleet Performance:

The suspension is attributed to Eskom’s positive assessment of its generation fleet’s performance, which has resulted in improved electricity supply.

Lower Weekend Demand:

Lower electricity demand during the weekend is also a contributing factor to this suspension of load shedding.

Breakdowns and Planned Maintenance:

Eskom reported a reduction in equipment breakdowns to 12,925MW, while planned maintenance stands at 4,889MW of generation capacity.

Further Updates:

Eskom intends to offer further updates on Sunday afternoon, and it remains committed to promptly communicating any significant changes or developments.

This announcement is a welcome relief for South African residents, as it provides an extended period without load shedding. Eskom’s efforts to maintain a stable power supply and minimize disruptions continue to be a top priority

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.
