No load shedding forecasted for Wednesday, says Eskom

Eskom says it is NOT expecting to implement load shedding on Wednesday, as it says, ‘’have enough generation capacity’’.

The ailing parastatal implemented load shedding between 9p.m on Tuesday until 5a.m on Wednesday, after a generation unit, each at the Tutuka, Medupi and Hendrina power stations tripped, but those units have since recovered.

Eskom says a further 2 generation units are expected to return to service later today.

It added that emergency generation reserves were also sufficiently replenished.

The power utility urged consumers to use electricity sparingly, ‘’as the system remains vulnerable and unpredictable’’

“As previously communicated, the possibility of load shedding remains elevated while Eskom continues to implement reliability maintenance, and as such the system will continue to be constrained during this period.” Eskom said in a statement.
