The risk of loadshedding remains high for the next few days
Wednesday, 13 March 2019: Eskom has not implemented rotational loadshedding since 15 February 2019. However, the risk of loadshedding remains high for the next few days, but it will only be implemented if absolutely necessary.
 
The power system remains tight and vulnerable and while Eskom is making every effort to return generating units online in order to limit loadshedding, it could be implemented at short notice should there be a significant shift in plant performance. This could include a significant loss in generating plant due to unplanned technical breakdowns.  
 
We continue to appeal to residents and businesses to use electricity sparingly during this period. Please switch off geysers as well as all non-essential lighting and electricity appliances to assist in reducing demand.
 
Eskom will continue to provide regular updates about the state of the power system through various media platforms.
