Stage 2 loadshedding will be implemented from 09:00 to 23:00 on Sunday. The loadshedding is required overnight and all day to cater for further trips and to create capacity to replenish water reserves for our pumped storage schemes.

💥LOADSHEDDING UPDATE SAT, 07 DEC 2019 – 21:00 💥

ESKOM: Saturday, 07 December 2019: Stage 2 rotational loadshedding will shift to Stage 1 from 23:00 tonight until 09:00 on Sunday and will move back to Stage 2 from 09:00 until 23:00 on Sunday evening

💥LOADSHEDDING UPDATE FRI, 06 DEC 2019 – 21:00 💥

ESKOM: Friday, 06 December 2019: Stage 4 rotational loadshedding will shift to Stage 2 from 23:00 tonight and will continue until 23:00 on Saturday evening

“Eskom is currently implementing Stage 4 rotational loadshedding which will shift to stage 2 from 23:00 this evening and will continue until 23:00 on Saturday evening. Loadshedding will be required overnight and all day on Saturday to cater for further trips and to create capacity to replenish water reserves for our pumped storage schemes.
The system continues to be tight, with unplanned breakdowns above 12000MW necessitating the use of diesel and water reserves for open cycle gas turbines and pumped storage schemes respectively. With the incessant rain, we continue to experience coal-handling problems at a number of our power stations as a result of wet coal, which has led to generation units being unable to produce power. ” – ESKOM

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

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.
