Weekend Relief From Eskom Load Shedding: 05:00-16:00 on Saturday and Sunday

Saturday, 30 September 2023: Due to improved generation availability and lower weekend demand, Eskom load shedding will be suspended between 05:00 and 16:00 on both Saturday and Sunday.

Stage 2 Eskom load shedding will be implemented from 16:00 until 05:00 on both days. Today, as previously communicated, Stage 3 Eskom load shedding will continue from 16:00 until 05:00 on Saturday.

Maintenance and Repairs

Currently, there are breakdowns affecting 14,266MW of generating capacity, and 5,388MW of capacity is out of service for planned maintenance. In the last 24 hours, generating units at Arnot, Duvha, Ingula, and Vanderkloof power stations were taken offline for repairs, while a unit at Hendrina Power Station was returned to service.

Continued Efforts

Eskom teams are working diligently to bring additional generating units back online as soon as possible. The evening peak demand forecast is 27,606MW, and Eskom urges the public to reduce demand by switching off non-essential appliances.

Your cooperation in using electricity sparingly, including turning off geysers and pool pumps from 17:00 to 21:00, is greatly appreciated, as it helps alleviate pressure on the power system and may result in lower stages of Eskom 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.
