Load Shedding Returns: Eskom Switching Between Stage 2 and 3 From 4PM on Sunday

Eskom Reintroduces Load Shedding After a respite of over a week without load shedding, Eskom has declared the return of Stage 2 load shedding, scheduled to be in effect from 4 pm on Sunday until 4 pm on Monday.

Eskom spokesperson, Daphne Mokwena, stated that following this, Stage 3 load shedding will occur from 4 pm until 5 am on Tuesday, with a return to Stage 2 load shedding until 4 pm.

This cycle will continue daily until further notice.

Maintenance and Capacity Eskom reports breakdowns at 16,150MW of generating capacity, while planned maintenance accounts for 5,950MW of capacity temporarily offline.

During the last 24 hours, generating units at Duvha, Grootvlei, Kusile, and Matimba power stations were taken offline for repairs, and one generation unit at Kriel Power Station was successfully returned to service.

Eskom is diligently working to expedite the restoration of additional generating units.

Demand Forecast and Energy Conservation Eskom’s load forecast anticipates an evening peak demand of 24,824MW, with Monday’s peak demand estimated at 27,557MW.

Eskom appeals to the public to continue conserving energy by switching off non-essential appliances.

Additionally, they encourage practices such as geyser and pool pump shutdowns from 5 pm to 9 pm, as these efforts lower electricity demand and contribute to reducing the severity of load shedding.

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.
