Due to the increasing demand combined with insufficient generating capacity and the need to manage the emergency reserves, Stage 4 loadshedding will be implemented from 14:00 today until 05:00 on Saturday.

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

Unplanned outages slightly increased from 15 386 MW to 15 424MW of generating capacity, while the capacity out of service for planned maintenance increased from 5 617 MW to 6 280MW. Eskom’s load forecast for the evening peak demand is 28 123MW.

In the last 24 hours, 500MW of generating capacity was taken offline whilst in the same period 600MW were returned to service. Approximately 1 300MW of generating capacity is anticipated to return to service by Tuesday evening.

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

We would like to plead with members of the public to use electricity efficiently by switching off pool pumps and Geysers at 17:00 until 21:00. We would like to thank those who do heed the call to use electricity sparingly and efficiently 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 loadshedding.
