As the generation capacity shortages persist over the next few weeks, loadshedding will continue to be implemented at various stages. Eskom cautions the public that it will still take a few weeks for the power generation system to fully recover to pre-strike levels. 

Depending on several possibilities – including the workforce fully returning to work to conduct much needed repairs to equipment – it is anticipated that loadshedding will gradually be lowered to Stage 2 by the weekend. Eskom will communicate and implement any changes as may be necessary.

Stage 4 is currently being implemented until midnight. Stage 2 loadshedding will then be implemented until 05:00 on Monday morning. Stage 4 loadshedding will be implemented at 05:00 until 16:00. From 16:00 until 22:00 Stage 6 loadshedding will be implemented, before it is lowered to Stage 4 until midnight. 

On Tuesday Stage 2 loadshedding will be implemented from midnight until 05:00, before increasing to Stage 4 at 05:00 – 16:00. Stage 5 loadshedding will be implemented at 16:00 – 22:00. Loadshedding will then be lowered to Stage 4 until midnight.

We currently have 3 384MW on planned maintenance, while another 18 319MW of capacity is unavailable due to breakdowns.  

Eskom thanks all workers who have reported for duty and who continue to perform diligently under extremely challenging conditions.   

Eskom would like to remind the public that loadshedding is implemented only as a last resort to protect the national grid. We therefore urge all South Africans to continue using electricity sparingly especially during these uncertain times on the power system.
