After nine days of uninterrupted electricity supply, Eskom has announced the return of load-shedding. The power cuts will fluctuate between stages 2 and 3 and will continue until further notice.

Replenishing Emergency Reserves

Eskom spokesperson Daphne Mokwena explained that the decision to reintroduce load-shedding is necessary to replenish emergency reserves, particularly in anticipation of increased electricity demand due to cold weather in the coming days.

Load-Shedding Schedule:

  • Stage 2: Starting this afternoon at 16:00 and continuing until 16:00 tomorrow.
  • Stage 3: From tomorrow at 16:00, daily between 16:00 and 05:00.
  • Stage 2: Starting Tuesday morning at 05:00, daily between 05:00 and 16:00.

Load-shedding is a means to manage the electricity supply during times of high demand to prevent power grid failures.

Eskom has been working to improve generation capacity to reduce the need for load-shedding, but challenges persist.

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.
