Load shedding Back Today – Eskom

Eskom has warned South Africans who are battling freezing and wet conditions to brace themselves for potential load-shedding as of Monday afternoon.  The announcement was made by the power utility on Monday, 20 June 2022.

In its statement, Eskom cautioned the public that because of the continued shortage of generation capacity, “the power system is very constrained for this evening and for the next few weeks.

“There are a number of generating units expected to return to service during the day today, but the likelihood of load-shedding is high and may be required at short notice, most likely during the evening peaks between 5pm and 10pm.”

The statement said Eskom had 5,232MW on planned maintenance, while another 14,623MW was unavailable because of breakdowns.

“Eskom cautions that as the shortage of generation capacity persists, the system will continue to be constrained with an elevated risk of load-shedding over the coming weeks.”
