So with Medupi unit 1 down, this one having 3 down and not sure what else is down, we've lost 6GW maybe 8GW of capacity since August 3rd.
The only saving grace is we're going into Spring where demand hovers around 29Gw and weekends it can go to 27GW.
Anymore units lost will cause load shedding, not sure how long it takes to bring unit 2 and 3 online as that will be 1300MW on the grid. They also don't mention any other units that are down.
