Kimberley Load Shedding Status

UPDATE FRI, 15 FEBRUARY 2019 20:00

The probability of loadshedding is low for the next few days. The power system however remains tight and vulnerable and while Eskom is making every effort to limit loadshedding, it could be implemented at short notice should there be a significant shift in plant performance. This could include a significant loss in generating plant due to unplanned technical breakdowns.

UPDATE FRI, 15 FEBRUARY 2019 06:00
https://www.kimberley.org.za/?p=2615

Due to further improvement in generation performance and the notable strides made in replenishing water and diesel reserves, Eskom is not likely to implement loadshedding on Friday, 15 February 2019.

MONDAY, 11 FEBRUARY 2019 13:00 • KIMBERLEY LOADSHEDDING UPDATE
Due to continued pressure on the national grid, Eskom will implement Stage 4 loadshedding from 13h00 today and is likely to continue until 22h00.

Sol Plaatje will continue with the STAGE 2 loadshedding schedule but will also switch off all geysers until further notice.

BACKGROUND

Since this morning we have unexpectedly lost six additional generating units which have put additional strain on the system.

Stage 1 requires 1000MW, Stage 2 requires 2000MW, Stage 3 requires 3000MW and Stage 4 calls for 4000MW to be rotationally loadshed nationally at a given period. Loadshedding is conducted rotationally as a measure of last resort to protect the power system.

MONDAY, 11 FEBRUARY 2019 07:15 • KIMBERLEY LOADSHEDDING UPDATE

Eskom will implement Stage 2 rotational loadshedding from 09h00 today and is likely to continue until 22:00.

UPDATE SUNDAY, 10 FEBRUARY 2019 22:00
https://www.kimberley.org.za/?p=2615

Loadshedding was terminated at 22:00 on 10 February 2019.
There is a probability of loadshedding tomorrow as a result of a shortage of capacity due to a number of generating units still out of service due to breakdowns.

Eskom maintenance teams will continue to work through the night to bring units back online.

Note that some municipalities may take longer to restore load. If customers experience outages for longer periods than announced, please contact your supplier (Eskom or the Municipality) as this may be a localised power outage

UPDATE SUNDAY, 10 FEBRUARY 2019 10:30am
https://www.kimberley.org.za/?p=2615
Eskom will implement Stage 2 rotational loadshedding from 13:00 and is likely to continue until 22:00.
NOTE: Even though Eskom will only start loadshedding at 13:00 Sol Plaatje Municipality may start the rolling blackouts in Kimberley anytime from 12:00 to 14:00

MESSAGE FROM ESKOM:

ESKOM POWERALERT 1

Eskom implements Stage 2 rotational loadshedding

Eskom regrets informing South Africans and all its customers that after having not implemented loadshedding from 09 December 2018, Eskom will implement Stage 2 rotational loadshedding from 13:00 and is likely to continue until 22:00. This is as a result of a shortage of capacity. There is also a need to replenish and preserve emergency water and diesel resources to limit loadshedding possibility or magnitude thereof in the following week.

Customers are reminded to treat all electrical points as live during loadshedding.

Stage 2 calls for 2000MW to be rotationally loadshed nationally at a given period. Loadshedding is conducted rotationally as a measure of last resort to protect the power system from a total collapse or blackout.

We continue to appeal to residents and businesses to use electricity sparingly during this period. Please switch off geysers as well as all non-essential lighting and electricity appliances to assist in reducing demand.

ENDS
