Eskom Releases Updated Load-Shedding Schedule — Here Is The New Timetable


Eskom, the power utility, has announced that Stage 3 load-shedding will be implemented from 16:00 on Sunday, 6 August 2023, until 05:00 on Monday. This will be followed by Stage 1 load-shedding on Monday morning, which will then increase to Stage 4 at 16:00. The same pattern will be repeated on Tuesday into Wednesday.

Eskom currently has 4,434MW of generating capacity offline for planned maintenance, with an additional 15,050MW unavailable due to breakdowns. However, the company has managed to bring back a generating unit each at the Camden and Duvha power stations in the past 24 hours. Unfortunately, a generating unit at the Medupi Power Station had to be taken offline for repairs. The delay in returning two generating units each at the Kendal and Tutuka power stations to service is contributing to the current capacity constraints. Eskom assures that its teams are working tirelessly to resolve these issues and bring the units back online.

For your convenience, the load-shedding schedule from Sunday, 6 August, to Wednesday, 9 August, is provided in the table below:

Date | Day | Daytime (05:00–16:00) | Evening peak and early morning (16:00–05:00)
6 August | Sunday | Stage 1 | Stage 4
7 August | Monday | Stage 1 | Stage 4
8 August | Tuesday | Stage 1 | Stage 4
9 August | Wednesday | Suspended | Stage 2
