The Return of Load-Shedding Breaks: New Timetable Announced

Eskom has revealed its plan to temporarily suspend load shedding during most daylight hours in the upcoming week. This decision is made possible by the improvement in generation capacity and the availability of sufficient emergency reserves.

The Return of Load-Shedding Breaks: New Timetable Announced

Schedule for Load Shedding:

  • Between 16:00 on Sunday, 5 November 2023, and 05:00 on Monday, 6 November 2023, Eskom will enforce stage 2 load shedding as previously communicated.
  • Following this, load shedding will be paused from 05:00 to 16:00 on Monday.
  • Stage 2 load shedding will then resume from 16:00 until 05:00 on Tuesday, 7 November 2023.

Ongoing Pattern:

Eskom’s approach will be to suspend load shedding during the daytime and implement stage 2 load shedding during the evening peak hours. This pattern will be repeated daily until further notice. Eskom has also assured that they will communicate any significant changes in the schedule.

Load-Shedding Schedule:

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.
