Load shedding times for the weekend


Eskom implement stage 4 load shedding on Friday. In a statement the aling parastatal said that it will then reduce the power cuts lower stages over the weekend.

Eskom spokesperson Sikonathi Mantshantsha says seven generation units have been returned to service.

"During the same period six generating units that needed urgent repairs during the strike have been taken offline for repairs. This is made possible by the full return to work of all striking employees over the past two days.

"In addition, 600MW of capacity from the Hydroelectrica de Cahora Bassa in Mozambique was returned to service, boosting available generation capacity.

"Over the next few days nine generation units are anticipated to return to service, which will further improve generation capacity. This will, however, still require Eskom to continue implementing loadshedding for the foreseeable future until the situation has been normalised.”
