Extended Breather from Load Shedding: Eskom’s Revised Schedule

Load Shedding: A Welcome Reprieve
Rejoice, folks! Eskom’s decided to gift us an extended break from load shedding. That’s right, we’re looking at four uninterrupted days without power cuts.

Now, instead of bracing for those pesky outages on Monday, you can breathe easy until 16h00 on Tuesday, 24 October. But keep in mind, Eskom cautions that when load shedding does make a comeback, it’ll be gentler, mostly just during the evenings.

Upcoming Power Schedule:

  • Monday, 23 October: All Clear!
  • Tuesday, 24 October:
    • Smooth Sailing until 16h00
    • Evening Alert: Stage 1 from 16h00 to 00h00
  • Wednesday, 25 October:
    • Mild Interruption: 00h00 to 05h00 (Stage 1)
    • Daytime Relief: 05h00 to 16h00
    • Evening Alert: 16h00 to 00h00 (Stage 1)
  • Thursday, 26 October:
    • Mild Interruption: 00h00 to 05h00 (Stage 1)
    • Daytime Relief: 05h00 to 16h00
    • Evening Alert: 16h00 to 00h00 (Stage 1)

A quick snapshot of Eskom’s current operations: Breakdowns hover around 13,559MW, with a planned maintenance chipping away at 4,765MW of generation capacity. Stay informed and plan accordingly!
