What is Load Shedding?:

Load shedding is a method employed to manage the current electricity shortage in South Africa. It involves distributing the available electricity supply among all users to prevent overloading the grid.

Challenges and Consequences:

Nqutu acknowledges the significant negative impacts of load shedding. While the city aims to put an end to load shedding, it requires more active participation from customers. Many residents have not fully embraced energy conservation practices, which exacerbates the challenges presented by load shedding.

Energy Conservation Tips:

To mitigate the effects of load shedding, individuals and businesses can take various measures:

  • Switch off Unnecessary Equipment and Lights: Turn off electrical devices and lighting when not in use.
  • Energy-Efficient Lighting: Replace conventional light bulbs with energy-efficient alternatives.
  • Solar Geysers: Consider installing solar geysers to reduce reliance on electric water heating.
  • Pool Pump Operation: If you have a swimming pool, minimize the operating time of the pool pump.

Responsibility of Commercial Customers:

Commercial establishments play a crucial role in managing energy consumption during load shedding. Some actions they can take include:

  • Strategic Lighting Control: Switch off or dim lighting in sections of the building where it’s not needed.
  • Efficient Air Conditioning Usage: Ensure that air conditioning systems are operated efficiently to conserve energy.
  • Timed Lighting: Use timers to control lighting, especially in showrooms or other marketing areas.

Building a More Energy-Efficient City:

Avoid being labeled as insensitive to the energy crisis, which contributes to load shedding. By adopting energy-efficient practices and encouraging others to do the same, the city can collectively work towards reducing the impact 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.
