Eskom Will Implement Stage 3 Loadshedding Starting Today at 16:00 and Extending Through Tuesday at 05:00

Commencing from 16:00 today until 05:00 on Tuesday, Stage 3 loadshedding will be in effect. Subsequently, from 05:00 until 16:00, Stage 1 loadshedding will be enforced.

This sequence will be repeated daily until further notification. Any significant alterations will be communicated through an updated statement from Eskom.

Eskom Will Implement Stage 3 Loadshedding Starting Today at 16:00 and Extending Through Tuesday at 05:00

As of Monday, 14 August 2023, the implementation of Stage 3 loadshedding from 16:00 today until 05:00 on Tuesday is necessary to restore emergency reserves.

Following this, Stage 1 loadshedding will be conducted between 05:00 and 16:00. This routine will persist until further notice. Should there be substantial changes, Eskom will release another announcement.

Presently, breakdowns have led to a loss of 16,054MW in generating capacity, while 3,921MW of generating capacity is offline for planned maintenance.

Over the last 24 hours, generating units at Camden, Duvha, Kriel, and Lethabo power stations have been brought back into operation.

Simultaneously, a generating unit at Tutuka and two units at Kendal power stations have been shut down for repairs.

The delay in restoring generating units at Kendal, Matimba, and Tutuka Power Stations is contributing to the existing capacity limitations.

Eskom teams are diligently working to expedite the restoration of these generating units.

We urge the public to continue reducing electricity consumption by switching off non-essential appliances. We extend our gratitude to those who have responded to the call to use electricity judiciously and efficiently,

Which includes turning off geysers and pool pumps between 17:00 and 21:00. This effort significantly reduces demand, eases strain on the power system, and aids in lowering the severity of loadshedding stages.

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.
