Eskom cuts night-time load-shedding

Eskom will no longer implement stage 4 load-shedding during the evenings and early mornings and instead maintain stage 3 load-shedding until further notice.

In an update on Wednesday, 14 February 2024, the power utility said this was due to gradually returning its generating units to service and having efficient emergency reserves.

Eskom had previously communicated that stage 4 load-shedding would be implemented between 16:00 and 05:00 the following day, until further notice

Eskom also said it expected to return 2,150MW of generating capacity to service by Wednesday.

Eskom is anticipating evening peak demand to be around 26,701MW.

“Our power station managers will continue to work around the clock to return more generating units to service and improve the available capacity,” Eskom said.

“Eskom will communicate should any significant changes occur.”
