Early this morning Eskom announced that not only would loadshedding at Stage 2 be in effect from Wednesday morning, it would be in effect all week.

This will be until at least 22:00 on Sunday 13th June, according to the utility.

As of Wednesday morning, generation units at Kusile, Tutuka, Duvha, Kendal and Koeberg Power Stations are still being brought back to service and as such are unavailable.

“In addition, these constraints have been exacerbated by the high winter demand throughout the day over the past few days as brought about by the colder temperatures,” Eskom wrote.

Adding to its list of woes, Eskom added that it had to make use of emergency reserves in order to meet demand over the last two days.

Breakdown currently total 13 752MW (a slight improvement on yesterday’s figure) while planned maintenance means 1 273MW is unavailable.

With a full, continuous week of loadshedding ahead we advise checking out the Eskom loadshedding site and Eskomsepush on mobile to keep up to date with what times your area will be affected.
