In a move that will bring relief to many, Eskom has updated its load shedding schedule, offering a respite during daytime hours for the upcoming week.

Week’s Plan:

  • Daytime Relief: No load shedding until 16:00 starting Monday.
  • Evening Schedule: Stage 2 load shedding kicks in from 16:00 to 05:00 the following day.
  • Cycle Continues: This pattern of daytime suspension and evening Stage 2 repeats daily.

Behind the Decision:

  • Generating Units: The return of some units since Friday bolsters the grid.
  • Emergency Reserves: Sufficient levels contribute to the suspension decision.

Eskom’s strategic adjustment aims to balance power supply with ongoing maintenance and recovery efforts, ensuring a smoother transition into the week for all.
