Industrial, Commercial and Agricultural Load Management. During evening peak times, load management initiatives reduce demand in order to reduce congestion.

Using Load Management projects, customers’ peak load can be clipped or shifted in order to flatten their system loads. For demand reduction, industries must manage their activities without violating health and safety regulations.

Residential Load Management. By shifting evening peak demand to off-peak and standard periods, Residential Load Management (RLM) aims to reduce residential energy consumption.

Residential Load Management

Eskom defines evening peak periods for residential households during which this is crucial for reducing demand. Residential geysers are remotely switched off during peak periods by the systems to help developers reduce hot water demand.

The criteria and conditions are as follows

  • The minimum size of a residential load shifting project is 1 MW

  • Metros/municipalities can submit only one proposal

  • There is a 12-month deadline for implementing projects

  • For both summer and winter, Eskom defines the evening peak period as the period of targeted demand reduction

  • During a sustainability term of 24 months, performance is measured quarterly.

  • There are templates and documentation requirements for proposal submissions
