Eskom to reduce loadshedding to Stage 1 from 17:00 until 22:00 as the generation system has eased; no loadshedding is anticipated during the weekend
Friday, 14 August 2020: After successfully returning three generation units to service today, Eskom is pleased to announce that pressure on the generation system has eased this afternoon. Loadshedding will therefore be reduced to Stage 1 starting 17:00 until 22:00.
 
While no loadshedding is anticipated during the weekend, Eskom wishes to remind the public to continue using electricity sparingly as the system remains vulnerable and unpredictable.
 
Eskom teams successfully returned a generation unit each at the Duvha, Kriel and Tutuka power stations to service. These have helped ease the generation capacity constraints, enabling us to suspend loadshedding for the weekend.
 
We thank the people of South Africa for their assistance during the difficulties of loadshedding.
