Eskom, the state-owned electricity provider, has made a significant announcement regarding load shedding. The decision to suspend daytime load shedding starting Monday and until further notice is based on positive developments in power generation and emergency reserves for the upcoming week.

Eskom to Halt Daytime Load Shedding Starting Monday

Suspension of Daytime Load Shedding:

Eskom is taking a major step by suspending load shedding during daytime hours, providing relief for South Africa’s economy.

This suspension will remain in effect until further updates are provided.

Reason for Suspension:

The decision to suspend load shedding is attributed to improved power generation capacity and sufficient emergency reserves.

These factors have a direct impact on the ability to meet the electricity demand.

Continuation of Stage-2 Load Shedding:

While daytime load shedding is suspended, stage-2 power cuts will persist between 4 PM and 5 AM daily, as specified in Eskom’s statement.

Communication of Changes:

Eskom is committed to keeping the public informed and will provide updates if there are any significant changes in the load-shedding situation.

This decision signifies a positive development in managing South Africa’s ongoing electricity supply challenges, and Eskom aims to minimize the impact of load shedding on the country’s economy.

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.
