Due to the ongoing improvements in the generation fleet and the full recovery of emergency reserves, Eskom announced a revised load shedding schedule.

Load shedding will remain suspended and only resume on Tuesday at 16:00. Stage 1 load shedding will be implemented on Tuesday from 16:00 until 05:00 on Wednesday.

This pattern of resuming load shedding in the evening and suspending it during the day will continue daily until further notice.

The positive news about the suspension of load shedding is a result of improving generation capacity and the recovery of emergency reserves.

This announcement brings hope of a more stable power supply for South Africans, and Eskom will continue to communicate any significant changes affecting the power grid.

Eskom Loadshedding will continue until 5:00 on Tuesday, as previously announced

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.
