Eskom Transfers Load Shedding Operations to City Power in Johannesburg

Eskom, South Africa’s state-owned power utility, will officially hand over the responsibility of load shedding operations to Johannesburg’s City Power for the majority of areas previously affected by blackouts, aiming to streamline load shedding management for a more efficient distribution of power.

While the transition takes effect on November 6, specific areas in Roodepoort, Randburg, Midrand, and Alexandra, supplied by City Power, will continue to be managed by Eskom due to network complexities.

During this transition, areas served by City Power will retain a two-hour load shedding schedule, even during stages 5 and higher.

Amanda Qithi, the Eskom Gauteng spokesperson, emphasized their commitment to ensuring stable electricity supply throughout this shift.

The revised load shedding blocks and schedules will be available on both Eskom’s and City Power’s websites starting November 6, 2023, helping residents better prepare for potential impacts on their daily routines.

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.

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.
