Eskom said that its emergency generation reserves are almost depleted – both the diesel and pumped storage dam levels.

“The higher load shedding stages are required to help build up the emergency generation reserves during the week,” it said.

During the weekend, the breakdown of a generating unit each at Duvha, Kriel and Medupi power stations, as well as the delayed returns of a generating unit each at Camden, Kusile, Komati, and Kendal power stations have exacerbated current generation capacity shortages, forcing the escalation of load shedding.

Eskom teams have returned a generating unit each at Grootvlei, Hendrina, Majuba, Matla and Tutuka power stations to service.

The group currently has 6 004MW on planned maintenance, while another 14 961MW of capacity is unavailable due to breakdowns.
