Eskom Temporarily Reduces Night-time Load-Shedding - New Timetable

Eskom, South Africa’s state-owned power utility, has announced a temporary reduction in load-shedding to stage 1 after a period of intense electricity shortages.

Eskom Temporarily Reduces Night-time Load-Shedding – New Timetable

This relief, effective from the evening of Wednesday, October 18, 2023, until 05:00 on Thursday, October 19, is attributed to the successful replenishment of emergency reserves.

However, challenges remain, and a modified schedule will be implemented, with stage 2 load-shedding returning in the evenings. This pattern of suspending load-shedding during the day and reverting to stage 2 at night will persist until further notice.

Eskom is committed to transparent communication with the public and will update them on any significant developments.

  • Load-Shedding Reduction: Eskom has reduced load-shedding from stage 2 to stage 1, providing South Africans with temporary relief from more severe blackouts.
  • Emergency Reserves Replenished: The decision to lower the load-shedding stage is possible because Eskom’s emergency reserves have been fully replenished.
  • Modified Load-Shedding Schedule: Eskom will suspend load-shedding during the day, starting from 16:00, and reinstate stage 2 during the night, commencing at 05:00.
  • Continual Monitoring: Eskom will closely monitor the situation and make necessary adjustments, ensuring that the public is informed of any significant changes.

Eskom’s ongoing efforts to manage load-shedding are reflective of the challenges faced in maintaining a stable electricity supply. The modified schedule aims to strike a balance between supply and demand, providing some respite to the people of South Africa.

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.
