Eskom Urges South Africans to Reduce Electricity as Succession of Cold Fronts Set to Hit SA

Jul 20, 2021

Faizel Patel – 20/072021

Eskom has urged the public to reduce electricity following a warning from the South African Weather Service of a succession of cold fronts expected to sweep across the country this week going into the weekend.

The power utility says  the increase in electricity as South Africans try and keep warm during the adverse weather conditions will put severe pressure on the power system.

Spokesperson Sikonathi Mantshatsha says the system is currently performing relatively well and Eskom is not expecting to implement load shedding at the moment.

“Eskom has not implemented load shedding since 13 June due to some improvement in the performance of the Generation fleet. However, the cold front will increase the demand for electricity thereby putting pressure on the power system. Therefore, Eskom urges the people of South Africa to help reduce electricity usage in order to ease the pressure on the system.”

Eskom says it will inform the public if there are any  significant changes to the performance of the system.
