Eskom has stated that it will be able to maintain stable electricity supply this weekend, citing an improvement in its generation capacity and lower electricity demand. Daphne Mokwena, a spokesperson for the utility, explained, “Load shedding will be suspended between 5 am and 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday, with Stage 2 load shedding resuming from 4 pm until 5 am on the same days.”

While Eskom’s top management had previously expressed optimism about reduced power cuts as power stations improved, Mokwena cautioned that the grid’s behavior remains unpredictable. She noted, “Over the past 24 hours, a generating unit at each of the Arnot, Duvha, Ingula, and Vanderkloof power stations was taken offline for repairs.

Eskom will closely monitor the power system and communicate any changes to load shedding if required.”

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.
