Load shedding

JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – ESKOM has ruled out load shedding on Friday as it had adequate generating capacity to meet the demand in electricity.

However, the company said the power system was expected to be constrained during the evening peak period (5pm – 9pm) mainly as a result of increased electricity demand.

“As we are currently experiencing cold weather conditions across the country, we urge electricity users to consider energy efficient ways of keeping warm,” read an Eskom statement.

In winter, the electricity demand peaks in the morning and evening as more electricity is used during these times.

“We appeal to all our customers to continue to reduce their electricity usage throughout the day but to be aware of the need to save more during the peak periods from 06:00 to 10:00 and 17:00 to 21:00,” Eskom stated.

Eskom said it would provide regular updates on the status of the power system through all the media platforms.
