Eskom: Suspension of Load Shedding Extended Until Monday Afternoon

Eskom, South Africa’s state-owned power utility, has provided an update regarding its Eskom load shedding schedule, indicating that load shedding will remain suspended until 4 pm on Monday.

Eskom: Suspension of Load Shedding Extended Until Monday Afternoon

Initial Load Shedding Schedule

Initially, Eskom had announced that it would be implementing stage 1 load shedding, which is a controlled reduction of electricity supply to prevent a total blackout, from 4 pm on Sunday until 5 am on Monday.

Stage 2 Load Shedding Planned

Following the initial stage 1 load shedding, Eskom is planning to implement stage 2 load shedding, which is a more severe form of load shedding with a greater reduction in electricity supply, from 4 pm on Monday until 5 am on Tuesday.

Reason for Load Shedding Suspension

According to Eskom spokesperson Menzi Mngomezulu, the break in the planned power cuts is due to improved generation capacity and performance. This suggests that Eskom has made progress in ensuring a more stable and reliable supply of electricity.

Temporary Suspension and Daily Cycle

Mngomezulu further explains that load shedding will be temporarily suspended from 05:00 until 16:00 on Tuesday. However, a specific pattern will be followed.

Load shedding will be suspended during the day, from 05:00 to 16:00, and then stage 2 load shedding will be implemented in the evening, from 16:00 to 05:00. This cycle will be repeated daily until further notice.

This update provides important information to the public about Eskom’s load shedding plans, the reasons behind the changes, and the expected schedule for power cuts, allowing residents and businesses to better plan for periods of reduced electricity supply.

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.
