Eskom notice of publication of the addendum to the Generation Connection Capacity Assessment 2025

  • As indicated per the Generation Connection Capacity Assessment (GCCA) 2025 published in October 2023, parts of the transmission network located in the Eastern Cape and Western Cape have no capacity as all of the capacity has been depleted from previous bid window rounds and private off-takers.

“The GCCA 2025 Addendum provides the 2025 connection capacity with curtailment for energy generators and serves as an addendum to the GCCA 2025 published in October 2023, for the purpose of indicating additional capacity that has been made available in the Eastern Cape and Western Cape under curtailment. By accepting a reasonable share of no more than 10% of curtailment, 3 470MW of additional generation capacity can be connected to the grid almost immediately, with 2 680MW in the Western Cape and 790MW in the Eastern Cape,” explains Eskom’s Transmission Group Executive, Segomoco Scheppers.

The GCCA 2025 Addendum has been published on the Eskom website and can be accessed by clicking on the following link: https://www.eskom.co.za/eskom-divisions/tx/gcca/
