Monday, 28 October 2019: There is no loadshedding expected today and the probability of loadshedding is low for the week.
Eskom’s electricity system has made significant progress towards full recovery and our water reserves for pump storage schemes and diesel reserves for the open cycle gas turbines have been replenished for the week. Several units have also been returned to service from planned and unplanned maintenance.
While the generating plant performance has improved, the plant continues to remain vulnerable and any unexpected shift such as an increase in unplanned breakdowns could result in loadshedding at short notice.
Eskom wishes to thank customers for their understanding and for using electricity sparingly. Please switch off geysers as well as all non-essential lighting and electricity appliances to assist in reducing demand.
We will continue to keep South Africans informed about the status of the electricity system.
