Adding Capacity to the Grid

Ramokgopa cites additional capacity additions to the grid as a key factor in load-shedding reduction.

Kusile Power Station’s Contribution

One 800 MW unit from Kusile Power Station is already connected, with two more to follow, improving supply.

The Desire for Swift Resolution

Ramokgopa hopes that load-shedding will become history sooner than later, emphasizing the need for a quicker resolution.

Presidential and Government Commitments

President Cyril Ramaphosa and Deputy President Paul Mashatile have previously promised an end to load-shedding by 2024.

Energy Expert Warnings

Energy experts like Hilton Trollip and Chris Yelland caution against unrealistic optimism in ending load-shedding by next year.

Historical Performance Concerns

Historical performance data and constraints on power station units raise doubts about rapid load-shedding resolution.

Conservative Expectations

Yelland advises being conservative in expectations to avoid raising false hopes and losing credibility.

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.

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.
