Eskom Aims for Daytime Load Shedding Breaks This Week

Temporary Relief in Power Cuts

Eskom has announced a strategic suspension of load shedding during daytime hours for the coming week, offering some respite to South Africans.

This Week’s Plan:

  • Immediate Schedule: No load shedding until 16:00 today, followed by Stage 1 into Monday morning.
  • Continuing Pattern: Daytime suspensions from 05:00 to 16:00, with Stage 2 load shedding each evening until the next morning.
  • Duration: These measures will be in place from Monday, repeating daily until further notice.

Behind the Decision:

  • Power Recovery: The adjustments come thanks to restored emergency reserves and the return of generating units.
  • Capacity Boost: An additional 3,330MW expected by Wednesday.
  • Demand Management: Adjustments align with the forecasted demand, tonight pegged at 24,883MW.

Eskom commits to keeping the public informed on any major updates or changes in the load shedding schedule.
