Eskom Weekly Load-Shedding Schedule

Eskom, South Africa’s state-owned electricity company, has provided an update on its Eskom load-shedding schedule. This adjustment brings temporary relief to the nation, and it’s important to understand the details.

Reason for Extension

Eskom announced that its generating capacity has stabilized, with breakdowns at 13,158MW and 6,050MW of capacity scheduled for maintenance. This improvement allows for a brief extension of the load-shedding break.

Extension Details

Load shedding will remain suspended throughout Sunday and resume at 16:00 on Monday, October 16, 2023. Stage 2 load-shedding will then be implemented until 05:00 on Tuesday, October 17, 2023. Subsequently, load shedding will be suspended again until 16:00, and stage 2 will be implemented from 16:00 on Tuesday, October 17, 2023, to 05:00 on Wednesday, October 18, 2023.

Continued Pattern

Eskom intends to repeat this daily pattern until further notice. The schedule for each day will follow this format, offering a clear plan for load-shedding.

Scheduled Load-Shedding Stages

Please refer to the table below for the planned load-shedding stages, starting from Sunday, October 15, 2023:

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.

Eskom Loadshedding Today

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.
