Eskom’s Update:

Eskom highlighted the need for Stage 3 load shedding due to a generation capacity shortage from 16h00 today until 05h00 on Saturday.

Thereafter, it will shift to Stage 2 load shedding until Sunday morning, followed by Stage 1 until Sunday afternoon.

The utility assured close monitoring of the power system and promised communication for any load shedding schedule changes.

Current unplanned outages stand at 17,391MW, impacting the return to service of four generating units, including Koeberg Unit 1. Additionally, 4,654MW remains offline for planned maintenance.

Eskom anticipates approximately 4,700MW of capacity to be back online by Sunday evening.

They acknowledged a forecasted evening peak demand of 27,668MW and expressed gratitude to those conserving energy by judiciously using electricity.

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.
