Eskom Announces Daytime Load Shedding Break for Weekend

Lighter Load Ahead

Eskom has planned a brief respite from load shedding this weekend, with daylight hours free from power cuts.

Weekend Schedule:

  • Friday Night: Stage 2 load shedding until 20:00, then escalates to stage 4 to boost reserves.
  • Saturday: Load shedding paused (from 05:00), resuming with stage 2 in the evening.
  • Into the Week: Stage 1 load shedding picks up post-weekend, until further updates.

Behind the Pause:

  • The suspension aligns with expected lower demand and the return of 1,500MW to the grid by Sunday, offering a temporary relief to residents.
