Suspension of Eskom Load Shedding Extended to Tuesday Afternoon

Eskom, the South African power utility, announced on Sunday that it would extend the suspension of load shedding. The initial plan was to halt load shedding until 4 pm on Monday, but this extension now continues until 4 pm on Tuesday.

Reason for Suspension

The suspension of rolling blackouts is attributed to two critical factors: continued good generation fleet performance and the full recovery of emergency reserves. These positive developments have allowed Eskom to temporarily halt load shedding.

Stage 1 Load Shedding Schedule

On Tuesday, from 4 pm to 5 am on Wednesday, Eskom will implement Stage 1 load shedding. Following this, load shedding will be suspended from 5 am until 4 pm. Stage 1 load shedding will then resume from 4 pm to 5 am on Thursday morning.

Continuation of the Pattern

This daily pattern of load shedding will persist until further notice, with Eskom closely monitoring the situation.

As of the announcement, Eskom is managing breakdowns totaling 13,559MW, while planned maintenance affects 4,765MW of generation capacity. The demand forecast for the evening peak stands at 25,054MW, reflecting the balance between supply and demand.

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.
