Friday, 28 October 2022: The lower weekend demand has made it possible to suspend loadshedding from midnight until Monday. Stage 2 loadshedding is currently underway until 16:00 today, whereafter it will increase to Stage 3 until midnight. Eskom will publish a further update on Sunday afternoon, or as soon as there are any significant changes.
Since Thursday morning Eskom teams have returned a generating unit each at Arnot, Kendal, Kriel and two units at Tutuka power stations.
We currently have 6 234MW on planned maintenance, while another 13 779MW 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.
