Eskom: Current Bout of Loadshedding to End Friday Morning 5am

  • Eskom has announce that loadshedding will be reduced to Stage 2 starting at 12:00 today, and will then be suspended at 05:00 on Friday.
  • This has been made possible by the return to service of many of the units that had suffered breakdowns over the past two weeks, and a sufficient recovery in emergency generation reserves.
  • The improved demand response for different stages of loadshedding has also enabled a faster than anticipated recovery. 

Total breakdowns have reduced to 11 224MW while planned maintenance is 7 030MW of capacity, as we continue with the reliability maintenance.

Eskom thanks all our customers for their patience and assistance during this period of loadshedding.
