What Is Load Shedding?

Load shedding is a strategy employed to manage the current electricity scarcity in South Africa. It involves distributing the available electricity supply among all users. Kamhlushwa acknowledges the significant impact of load shedding on its residents. While the city aims to mitigate load shedding, it requires active participation from its customers.

Responsibilities of Residents

Kamhlushwa urges its residents to take measures to conserve energy and alleviate the energy crisis:

  • Switch Off Unnecessary Equipment and Lights: Reducing power consumption by turning off unused equipment and lights can help save energy.
  • Transition to Energy-Efficient Lighting: Replacing traditional lighting with energy-efficient alternatives can reduce electricity usage.
  • Consider Solar Geysers: Installing solar geysers can reduce dependence on electric water heating, contributing to energy conservation.
  • Optimize Pool Operation: Pool owners should minimize the operating time of pool equipment to reduce electricity consumption.

Responsibilities of Commercial Customers

Commercial customers are encouraged to play their part in energy conservation:

  • Manage Lighting: Identify areas where lighting can be reduced or switched off. Adjusting light circuits can achieve this effectively. Unnecessary building lights, especially at night, should be turned off or set on timers.
  • Optimize Air Conditioning: Inefficient lighting can generate excess heat, causing air conditioning systems to work harder. Operating air conditioning systems efficiently can help save energy.
  • Avoid Insensitivity to the Energy Crisis: Commercial entities should avoid contributing to the energy crisis by appearing insensitive to load shedding. Implement energy-efficient practices to reduce the strain on the electricity grid.

Collective Effort to Alleviate Load Shedding

Kamhlushwa emphasizes the importance of collective action to combat load shedding. While the city strives to minimize power disruptions, active engagement from residents and businesses is essential to address the energy crisis effectively.

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.
