No loadshedding expected for second consecutive day

Thursday, Eskom has not loadshed since yesterday and loadshedding will not be implemented today as there has been a number of improvements on the power system. Unplanned outages or breakdowns were at 9 462MW as at 06:00 this morning, as several units have returned successfully. In addition, emergency reserves are at adequate levels. However, we remind customers that loadshedding can be implemented at short notice if there is a change in the system performance. Eskom will communicate if there is any shift and will provide a prognosis for tomorrow later today.

We request customers to continue to use electricity sparingly and to reduce demand as the system is still vulnerable. Eskom also wishes to remind South Africans that there is a possibility of increased loadshedding over the next 18 months as we are conducting critical maintenance to restore the ageing plant to good health.

To assist us in reducing demand:

Set air-conditioners average temperature at 23C

Switch off your geysers over peak periods

Use the cold water tap rather than using the geyser every time

Set your swimming pool pump cycle to run twice a day, three hours at a time

At the end of the day, turn off computers, copiers, printers and fax machines at the switch.

We appeal to customers to revisit their loadshedding schedules on the Eskom ( or local municipal websites, depending on their electricity supplier, to review amendments.
