Eskom’s Load-Shedding Rundown for the Week

At a Glance:

  • On the Clock: From Monday, it’s a daily on-and-off routine.

Heads up, folks! Eskom has just shared the scoop on the week’s power plans. Feeling the relief of the 24-hour break from load-shedding? Good news – they’re extending it! But come Monday evening, it’s back to the grind.

Current State of Affairs Eskom’s recent noon update reveals a “stable” generating capacity, albeit with breakdowns amassing 13,158MW. Add to that a 6,050MW chunk off the grid for routine maintenance.

The Week Ahead

  • Monday (16th Oct) to Wednesday (18th Oct): Here’s the drill:
    • Midnight to 5 am: Stage 2
    • 5 am to 4 pm: suspended
    • 4 pm to 5 am (next day): Stage 2

“This pattern will be repeated daily until further notice,” Eskom drops the line.

In Short: It’s an on-off dance with Eskom this week. Keep that in mind and plan accordingly! Stay tuned for more updates.
