“This morning a generating unit each at Hendrina, Tutuka and Kriel power stations were returned to service, while a unit at Arnot power station was taken offline for repairs. We have 1,904MW on planned maintenance, while another 17,255MW is unavailable due to breakdowns.”
Eskom has appealed to all South Africans to help limit the affect of load-shedding by reducing the usage of electricity and switching off all non-essential items.
“Eskom would like to remind the public that load-shedding is implemented only as a last resort to protect the national grid. We urge all South Africans to continue using electricity sparingly, especially between 5am and 9am and from 4pm to 10pm.”
