Eskom Temporarily Halts Load Shedding Until Monday Afternoon

Eskom, South Africa’s primary electricity supplier, has provided a temporary relief from load shedding for the remainder of the day on Sunday. Starting from 16:00 on Monday and lasting until 05:00 on Tuesday, Stage 2 load shedding will be implemented. This scheduled load shedding is essential, but Eskom aims to minimize disruptions.

Reason for Load Shedding Reprieve

Eskom attributed the absence of load shedding to stable generating capacity. They reported that there were breakdowns affecting 13,158MW of generation capacity, and 6,051MW of capacity was undergoing planned maintenance.

Eskom Loadshedding will continue until 5:00 on Tuesday, as previously announced

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.

Eskom Loadshedding Today

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.
