Loadshedding: The Latest from Eskom

Loadshedding will increase to Stage 3 from 16:00 – 05: 00 on Monday and Tuesday evenings, while Stage 2 loadshedding will be implemented at 05:00 – 16:00 Tuesday until further notice. The higher stage of loadshedding is mainly due to the high level of breakdowns as well as the depleted emergency generation reserves.

Eskom will give a further outlook during a media briefing on Tuesday afternoon or will publish a further update as soon as there are any significant changes.

Since Sunday morning a generating unit each at Duvha, Kriel and Tutuka power stations were taken offline for repairs while the delay in returning to service a unit each at Duvha and Majuba power stations have contributed to the delays.

Some Good News: A generating unit each at Grootvlei, Hendrina, Majuba, Matla and Medupi power stations were returned to service.

4 177MW is on planned maintenance, while another 16 922MW of capacity is unavailable due to breakdowns.
