Eskom Transfers Load Shedding Operations in Most of Johannesburg to City Power

Eskom, South Africa’s national power utility, has decided to delegate the responsibility of managing load shedding to City Power, a municipal electricity distributor in Johannesburg, starting in November.

This shift aims to enhance the reliability of the national power grid and streamline load shedding procedures across the city.

While City Power takes over most of Johannesburg’s load shedding operations, there will be some areas with technical challenges that remain under Eskom’s management.

This move is intended to alleviate the strain on the electricity infrastructure in the region.

City Power will now be responsible for implementing rotational power cuts, a role previously carried out by Eskom in many parts of Johannesburg.

The revised load shedding schedules will be made available to City Power customers on November 6th.

This transition is expected to introduce changes in the timing and duration of load shedding for these areas, even during more severe load shedding stages.

While City Power will take charge of most load shedding operations, some areas will continue to be supplied by Eskom due to technical complications.

These challenges may pertain to the existing infrastructure or specific requirements in these locations.

City Power’s infrastructure has been strained by prolonged power cuts, leading to residents experiencing extended periods of electricity outages.

The decision to transfer load shedding operations to City Power is part of Eskom’s strategy to address these issues and provide more efficient load shedding services in Johannesburg.

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.
