Loadshedding stage 4 to the weekend

Eskom has announced that load shedding stage 2 to stage 4 as at 15:00 until 22:00 on Wednesday 2 September. The power cuts will be scheduled to the weekend.

The power utility said the move is “due to exceptionally high demand”.

“Due to the continuing severe generation supply constraints caused by multiple unit breakdowns as well as the additional demand caused by the cold weather, Eskom will escalate the level of load shedding to stage 4” said the power utility in a statement.

Eskom said load shedding will continue throughout the weekend as its teams work around the clock to return as many of the generation units to service as possible.

“Eskom will continue to communicate the stage of load shedding should there be any further developments.

“This load shedding is necessary in order to conserve and replenish emergency reserves while also maintaining the stability of the power system,” read the statement.

While Eskom teams have successfully returned a generation unit each at Tutuka, Komati, Hendrina and the Camden power stations, two additional units, however, have suffered breakdowns at the Matla and Kriel power stations.

The power utility said unplanned breakdowns stand at 11 300MW of capacity, adding to the 5 040 MW currently out on planned maintenance.

South Africans are urged to help reduce electricity usage in order to assist Eskom to reduce the instance of load shedding.

  2. Having read this I thought it was really informative.

    I appreciate you taking the time and energy to put this short
    article together. I once again find myself spending way
    too much time both reading and posting comments.
    But so what, it was still worth it!

  3. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  4. I seriously love your blog.. Pleasant colors & theme.
    Did you develop this site yourself? Please reply back as I’m hoping to create my own blog and
    would like to know where you got this from or just what the theme is named.
    Many thanks!

  5. Howdy would you mind letting me know which hosting
    company you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.

    very much appreciated. scoliosis

  8. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless just imagine if you added some
    great photos or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could definitely be one of the very best in its field.
    Wonderful blog!
