Generation system is severely constrained as two generation units trip
Tuesday, 07 July 2020: Eskom requests the public to use electricity sparingly as the power generation system is severely constrained after two generation units tripped earlier this evening. We lost a unit each at Medupi and at Tutuka power stations, totalling about 1 300MW. This constrained supply situation may persist through the weekend.
 
Eskom teams are hard at work trying to return these units to service. The public’s co-operation in managing demand will help us supply the country’s demand through the peak periods.
