Eskom Weekend Load-Shedding Schedule for October 13-15 2023

Eskom has announced that it will maintain its stage 2 load-shedding protocol during the evenings and early mornings over the weekend of October 14-15, 2023. As has been the recent practice, load-shedding will be suspended for a duration of 11 hours during the daytime.

Eskom Weekend Load-Shedding Schedule for October 13-15, 2023

The schedule for stage 2 load-shedding entails power cuts from 16:00 until 05:00, followed by a break from 05:00 until 16:00 daily during the weekend. Eskom emphasized that this pattern will persist until further updates are provided.

Eskom attributed the continuation of these 11-hour load-shedding breaks to the stable performance of its generation fleet.

At the time of Eskom’s statement, there were breakdowns of 13,384MW, while planned maintenance resulted in the removal of an additional 6,510MW of capacity.

For specific details, refer to the table below indicating the planned load-shedding schedule for the upcoming weekend.

Date Day Daytime (05:00–16:00) Evening Peak (16:00–05:00)

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.
