Eskom weekly EAF hits 60% for 1st time since August 2022

Eskom has improved its coal power station fleet's weekly energy availability factor (EAF) to 60% for the first time in more than a year.

That is according to Eskom generation manager Eric Shumugam, speaking at the Minister of Electricity's update on government's energy action plan on Monday, 23 October 2023.

Minister of Electricity Kgosientsho Ramokgopa repeated his view in recent weeks that the country has turned a corner when it comes to reducing load-shedding.

Good, hope they can keep it up and get better.

The guys that have invested in renewables will continue to reap the benefit, but it's the little guys that get taken out, both business and residents, so they need this.
 
Just another polish and shine for the elections. Post elections, Stage 7 will be tasted I am sure.

What more than 6 months away???
If they start making improvements to this mess only a couple of months before elections they know they can make no significant dent in it.

I'm guessing they also realise people have a decently long memory, and won't necessarily be fooled by just a couple of months of improvement.

This isn't something you can just toss a t-shirt and Streetwise at. I've never seen this sort of response from an ANC government. They're clearly legitimately concerned for the first time.

Eskom hates me right now, I'm not giving them any money when the sun shines.
