Load shedding ruled out for nowBy TINTSWALO BALOYI
JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – ESKOM has reported stability to the power system, making blackouts unlikely.
“The power system is currently stable, enabling Eskom to perform
maintenance without load shedding,” the company stated early Wednesday.
However, as a result of increased electricity demand in the evening and
power stations units being on maintenance, the power system is expected
to be constrained during the evening peak period (17:00 “ 21:00).
“As we are currently experiencing cold weather conditions across the
country, we urge electricity users to consider energy efficient ways of
keeping warm,” Eskom said.
In winter the electricity demand peaks in the morning and evening as more
electricity is used during these times.
Eskom appealed 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.”
