Eskom has unveiled the load-shedding schedule for Sunday, 30 April, until Wednesday, 3 May.

Eskom noted that breakdowns are currently at 17,702MW of generating capacity, while the capacity out of service for planned maintenance stands at 3,702MW.

Over the past 24 hours, a generating unit each at Grootvlei and Lethabo power stations was taken offline for repairs. There were delays in returning a unit each to service at Arnot, Duvha, Kriel, and Lethabo power stations. “The team is working around the clock to ensure that generating units are returned to service as soon as possible,” said Eskom.

In the same period, a generating unit each at Matla and Medupi power stations were returned to service. “We thank those South Africans who do heed the call to use electricity sparingly and efficiently in helping to alleviate the pressure on the power system, as this is assisting in avoiding higher stages of load-shedding.”
