Eskom load shedding update: Sunday 22 February

Eskom has announced that it won’t be load shedding on Sunday (22 February) morning, following a full day of rolling blackouts on Saturday.

However, the likelihood of load shedding later in the day remains medium to high, as the grid remains under pressure.

“Due to additional power station units returning to service overnight, please note that there will be no load shedding this morning,” Eskom said.

“The prognosis for load shedding this evening is medium to high depending on the performance of our electricity generating plant.”

On Saturday, Eskom reduced its load shedding schedule to stage one.

The power utility said it had initially planned to implement stage two power cuts but some generating units that had to undergo maintenance had come back online over Friday night.

Stage one allows for up to 1000MW of the national load to be cut, stage two for up to 2000MW, and stage three for up to 4000MW.

Eskom customers can check load shedding schedules on the website or contact our customer call centre on 0860 037 566.
