Tuesday, 09 November 2021: The emergency generation reserves have showed significant progress over the past two days. Therefore, loadshedding will be reduced to Stage 3 from 05:00 on Wednesday 10 November until 05:00 on Friday.
Thereafter Stage 2 loadshedding will continue as previously communicated until 05:00 on Saturday 13 November. It is necessary to continue with loadshedding in order to fully replenish the emergency generation reserves.
Total breakdowns currently amount to 12 709MW while planned maintenance is 6 164MW of capacity.
We remind customers that loadshedding is implemented as a last resort to maintain the stability of the power system regardless of the stage of loadshedding.
Eskom would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused by the implementation of loadshedding, and requests the public to continue reducing the usage of electricity in order to help us through the constraints.
Eskom will communicate promptly should there be any significant changes to the power system.
