Load shedding back at stage 4

 ·22 Feb 2024

Power utility Eskom says it had to push load shedding to stage 4 in the early hours of Thursday morning (22 February) following the breakdown of five generating units.

Due to the loss of five generating units at Kendal Power Station and a generating unit at Duvha Power Station, Stage 4 load shedding was implemented at 04h00.

This will continue until further notice, the group said.

“Eskom will closely monitor the power system and communicate should any significant changes occur.,” it said.


For people living in the major metros, load shedding schedules are available here:

For access to other load shedding schedules, Eskom has made them available on loadshedding.eskom.co.za.

Smartphone users can also download the app EskomSePush to receive push notifications when load shedding is implemented, as well as the times the area you are in will be off.
