Eskom to Reduce Load Shedding for the Weekend – New Schedule

Eskom to Reduce Load Shedding: Eskom, the power utility, has announced its plans to suspend Eskom load shedding during the day over the upcoming weekend. This decision is attributed to the improved performance of electricity generation and the anticipated lower weekend demand.

Eskom to Reduce Load Shedding for the Weekend – New Schedule

Here’s the schedule:

Friday, 29 September:

  • Stage 2: Until 16h00
  • Stage 3: 16h00 to 00h00

Saturday, 30 September:

  • Stage 3: 00h00 to 05h00
  • Load shedding suspended: 05h00 to 16h00
  • Stage 2: 16h00 to 00h00

Sunday, 1 October:

  • Stage 2: 00h00 to 05h00
  • Load shedding suspended: 05h00 to 16h00
  • Stage 2: 16h00 to 00h00

Monday, 2 October:

  • Stage 2: 00h00 to 05h00
  • Further stages and times to be determined

It’s important to note that Eskom has previously suspended weekend load shedding but had to reintroduce outages due to the unpredictable state of the energy grid. Eskom will closely monitor the situation and communicate any changes as necessary.

Currently, breakdowns affect 14,266MW of generating capacity, and planned maintenance is responsible for 5,388MW being out of service. Eskom’s load forecast for the evening peak demand is 27,606MW, and it aims to keep outages at or below 14,500MW to minimize the risk of higher-stage load shedding.

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.
