While no loadshedding is expected tomorrow, the possibility of loadshedding remains high
Wednesday, 09 September 2020: With the continued recovery of available capacity to meet demand, Eskom is pleased to confirm that no loadshedding was implemented today. No loadshedding is expected tomorrow. However, any deterioration in the generation performance would result in the need for the implementation of loadshedding at short notice.
 
Eskom will continue to communicate timeously should there be any changes as the system remains unreliable and vulnerable.
 
Unplanned breakdowns amount to 11 334MW of capacity, adding to the 5 831MW currently out on planned maintenance. Eskom teams are working around the clock to return as many of these generation units to service as possible.
 
We urge the people of South Africa to continue using electricity sparingly in order to assist Eskom to avoid the implementation of loadshedding.
