Sunday, 27 November 2022: Loadshedding will be suspended at midnight tonight and again resume with Stage 1 at 05:00 – 16:00 on Monday. Stage 2 loadshedding will then be implemented daily from 16:00 throughout the night to 05:00 the following morning until further notice.
It is anticipated that no loadshedding will be implemented during the day from Tuesday. Eskom will publish a further update as soon as there are any significant changes.
The continued implementation of loadshedding is mainly due to the high levels of breakdowns and the limited emergency generation reserves.
We currently have 5 032MW on planned maintenance, while another 16 390MW 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.
