3 Days of Stage 2 Load-shedding Implemented in South Africa

News Flash

  • Due to the ongoing insufficient generation capacity and the loss of a unit each at Medupi, Duvha and Kendal power stations this morning, Stage 2 loadshedding will be implemented from 14:00 today until 05:00 on Saturday 20 November.
  • This is to preserve the remaining emergency reserves at the OCGT and pump storage power stations in order to prevent higher stages of loadshedding.

Of the five units that failed yesterday, a unit at Majuba, Kriel and Matimba power stations have returned to service while the remaining two units are undergoing boiler tube leak repairs.

Total breakdowns currently amount to 15 485MW while planned maintenance is 4 100MW of capacity.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
