Load Shedding Update: Saturday Night Special Raises Concerns for Boks Game

Eskom has decided not to implement stage 2 load shedding on Saturday evening and early Sunday morning due to lower-than-anticipated demand and improved generation performance.

Load shedding will remain suspended until 4 pm on Sunday, after which stage 2 load shedding will resume from 4 pm on Sunday, October 1st, until 5 am on Monday, October 2nd. The power utility will provide further updates if significant changes occur.

Rugby World Cup Clash on the Horizon

With the Springboks vs. Tonga Rugby World Cup match scheduled for 9 pm on Sunday, many South Africans will be relieved by this decision, hoping to watch the game without any interruptions.

Minister’s Passion for Electricity

Electricity Minister Dr. Kgosientsho Ramokgopa has expressed his dedication to addressing the power crisis, stating that he “eats, prays, and lives power.” He has been actively engaged in managing the electricity situation, sacrificing personal time and commitments for the cause.

Eskom’s Load Shedding Outlook

Eskom recently provided a State of the System update, forecasting stage 4 load shedding until the end of March 2024. This projection is based on planned maintenance and repairs, including the return to service of generating units at Kusile.

However, Eskom anticipates the need for power cuts on approximately 116 days between September 2023 and March 2024 if unplanned breakdowns remain at around 14,500 MW or less.

This update underscores the ongoing challenges facing South Africa’s power supply and the measures being taken to manage 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.
