Eskom Warns Load Shedding may be Implemented at Short Notice

Jul 22, 2021

Faizel Patel – 22/07/2021

Eskom says it may be forced to implement load shedding at short notice should further generating capacity losses occur

The power utility says its generation units have been severely impacted by the cold weather conditions which the South African Weather Service says is expected to continue at least until the weekend.

Eskom’s Sikonathi Mantshantsha says any further significant loss of capacity would force Eskom to implement load shedding in order to protect the integrity of the system.

“The system is currently severely constrained, and it is anticipated that towards the evening peak, the system will come under additional pressure due to high demand for electricity. Eskom would therefore like to appeal to the public to reduce the usage of electricity in order to help ease the pressure on the power system between 16:00 and 21:00.”

Mantshantsha says breakdowns currently total 12 984MW while planned maintenance is 2 924MW of capacity.
