Friday, 14 October 2022: Due to lower weekend demand loadshedding will be suspended at midnight on Friday. Eskom will publish a further update on Sunday afternoon, or as soon as any significant changes occur.
Since Wednesday evening a generation unit each at Arnot and Majuba power stations were returned to service while a generating unit each at Duvha, Hendrina, Lethabo and Tutuka power stations were taken offline for repairs.
We currently have 5 254MW on planned maintenance, while another 15 190MW of capacity is unavailable due to breakdowns.
Loadshedding is implemented only as a last resort in view of the shortage of generation capacity and the need to attend to breakdowns.
