Eskom Weekend Load Shedding Update

Eskom has modified the load shedding plan, elevating it to Stage 3 from 16:00 on Thursday, November 16, 2023. Moreover, Stage 3 will persist throughout Friday, November 17, due to a notable shortage in generation capacity. From 05:00 on Saturday, November 18, rotational power cuts will scale down to Stage 2. This sequence will continue as follows .

Eskom currently faces a planned maintenance outage of 4,654MW and an additional 17,391MW unavailable due to breakdowns. An expected return of approximately 4,700MW to the grid by Sunday evening offers a glimmer of relief.

Date Day Daytime (05:00–16:00) Evening peak (16:00–05:00)
November 16 Thursday Stage 2 Stage 3
November 17 Friday Stage 3 Stage 3
November 18 Saturday Stage 2 Stage 2
November 19 Sunday Stage 1 Stage 2

These adjustments are in response to the significant breakdowns affecting Eskom’s generation capacity, necessitating a higher level of load shedding than previously anticipated.

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.
