Stage 3 Load Shedding From 16:00 to 05:00

Stage 3 load shedding will be implemented from 16:00 today until 05:00 on Saturday. Thereafter, Stage 1 load shedding will be implemented from 05:00 until 16:00, followed by Stage 2 load shedding until 05:00 on Sunday.

This pattern will be repeated daily until further notice.

Eskom will closely monitor the power system and communicate any changes to load shedding should it be required.

Unplanned outages are currently at 17 507MW of generating capacity, including the delayed return to service of Koeberg Unit 1, while the capacity out of service for planned maintenance is 4 783MW.

Over the past 24 hours, a generating unit each at Camden, Majuba and Medupi power stations as well as two generating units at Arnot Power Station were taken offline for repairs.

In the same period, two generating units at Kriel Power Station were returned to service.

Eskom teams are working tirelessly to ensure that additional generating units are returned to service as soon as possible.

Eskom’s load forecast for the evening peak demand is 26 002MW. We would like to thank those who do heed the call to use electricity sparingly and efficiently, including switching off geysers and pool pumps from 17:00 to 21:00, as this lowers demand and helps in alleviating the pressure on the power system and contributes to lower stages of load shedding.

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.
