Stage 4 loadshedding will be implemented on Friday from 05:00 while Stage 3 loadshedding will be implemented on Saturday morning from 05:00

Thursday, 02 February 2023: Due to an improvement in available generation capacity, together with the lower weekend demand for electricity, Stage 4 loadshedding will be implemented from 05:00 on Friday morning until 05:00 on Saturday morning. Stage 3 loadshedding will then be implemented and continue until 05:00 on Sunday morning. Loadshedding will be suspended until 16:00 on Sunday afternoon, when Stage 2 loadshedding will be implemented.

Eskom cautions the public, however, that there is a high degree of uncertainty associated with this as these changes are dependent on units returning to service as planned.  A further update will be published as soon as any significant changes occur.

Since yesterday two generation units at Duvha, a unit each at Arnot, Camden, Grootvlei, Kendal, Kriel and Majuba power stations returned to service.  A generating unit at Lethabo power station was taken out of service due to a breakdown.

Breakdowns currently amount to 16 524MW of generating capacity while 4 802MW of generating capacity is out of service for planned maintenance.
