Loadshedding To Continue
Eskom has announced that it will be continuing load shedding through the week. For all the details on this round of loadshedding, read further.
South Africans have become accustomed to power cuts with Eskom announcing that loadshedding will continue this afternoon.
On Sunday, Eskom announced that it would be reducing to stage 1 loadshedding. It is set to end on Saturday morning.
Eskom put out a statement which said:
Loadshedding will be reduced to Stage 1 from 05:00 on Wednesday and continue until 05:00 on Saturday as the power system is still severely constrained.
Eskom says that extended loadshedding is needed due to the power generation system being severely constrained.
Since Monday, Eskom teams successfully returned four generation units at Kusile, Grootvlei, Kriel and Matla, as well as the Cahora Bassa line from Mozambique. However, this has not been sufficient to suspend load shedding at this point.
Meanwhile, the delayed return to service of four other units is prolonging the need to continue implementing power cuts, and Eskom said it is working hard to return the units back to service as soon as possible.
The power utility company currently has 5 850 MW on planned maintenance and another 13 443 MW capacity unavailable because of breakdowns and delays.
Eskom continues to implement reliability maintenance during this period, and as such the system will continue to be constrained, with the possibility of loadshedding remaining elevated.
Eskom has once again reminded citizens that it will continue to implement reliability maintenance and as such, the system will continue to be constrained. Eskom will continue to assess and communicate promptly as the situation changes.
South Africans are asked to use electricity sparingly in order to help limit the impact of loadshedding.
