Extended Load Shedding Suspension by Eskom Due to Adequate Emergency Reserves

Eskom, South Africa’s state-owned power utility, has extended the suspension of load shedding until 4 pm on Thursday. This means that there will be no power outages during this period.

Eskom mentioned that despite some constraints in its generation fleet, there are sufficient emergency reserves to avoid load shedding.

However, the statement indicates that Stage 1 load shedding will resume on Thursday evening from 4 pm until 5 am on Friday.

After that, load shedding will be suspended until 4 pm on the same day. This cycle is expected to repeat unless there are significant changes in the power supply situation.

Eskom also encouraged citizens to reduce electricity demand between 5 pm and 9 pm by turning off high-usage appliances like geysers and pool pumps.

The statement emphasizes the importance of conserving energy during these peak hours.

Eskom pledged to communicate any further developments or changes effectively, ensuring that the public is informed about the status of load shedding in the country.

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.
