Less load shedding this weekend


Prospects for less load shedding this weekend have just been announced.

Eskom said on Friday morning that due to “continued improvement in generation capacity” load shedding will be scaled down even further.

Load power will be reduced from 10:00 to phase 2 and will be in effect until 16:00. After that, phase 3 load shedding will be introduced and will last until 05:00 on Saturday.

Load power will be suspended from 05:00 to 16:00 on Saturday, after which phase 3 will be back in effect.

According to the power supplier, 13,542 MW of generation capacity is not available due to breakdowns.

“Eskom will indicate on Sunday afternoon what the outlook for load shedding will look like in the coming week.”
