- South Africa’s state owned energy utility, Eskom, reports that due to the breakdowns of eight generating units on Tuesday evening, Stage 4 loadshedding will be implemented from 16:00 today until 05:00 on Thursday.
- Thereafter, varying stages of loadshedding will be implemented until Saturday evening.
Breakdowns have increased to 19 127MW of generating capacity while the generating capacity out of service for planned maintenance is 2 313MW.
Since Tuesday evening, two generating units at Grootvlei Power Station were returned to service.
The delay in returning to service a generating unit each at Kendal, Kriel, Matla, and two generating units at Tutuka power stations is contributing to the current capacity constraints.
