Good news for South Africans weary of frequent power outages: Eskom has pressed pause on daytime load shedding.
Eskom’s latest announcement brings a bit of relief amidst ongoing power challenges. The power utility has indicated its plan to suspend daytime load shedding indefinitely. This means from dawn at 05:00 until dusk at 16:00, South Africans can expect uninterrupted power. However, they’re not out of the woods just yet. Eskom’s stage 2 load shedding will kick in from 16:00 and wrap up by 05:00 the following day.
“Eskom will communicate should any significant changes occur,” the company remarked, suggesting users stay alert for updates.
A Boost from Kusile
In a silver lining, the Kusile Power Station saga seems to be seeing a turn. Eskom proudly announced the return of Kusile Power Station Unit 3 to service, marking a significant leap in Eskom’s power stabilization efforts. This unit’s comeback, notably two months ahead of its projected schedule, promises an addition of a robust 800 MW when it hits peak capacity.
Such advancements aren’t without their challenges. The green light for the unit’s reactivation came after a positive verdict on Kusile’s Atmospheric Emission Licence appeal by both the Department of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment (DFFE) and the Nkangala District Municipality.
For South Africans, this combined news could signal the beginning of more stable power days ahead.
