💥LOADSHEDDING UPDATE SUN 23 FEB 2020 – 08:00am 💥
https://www.kimberley.org.za/?p=2615

UPDATE: No loadshedding is expected today.

ESKOM POWER ALERT 1 Date: 23 February 2020 – No rotational loadshedding expected today, but the possibility remains if there are any shifts in the system
Sunday, 23 February 2020: As the generation system has sufficiently improved with the successful return of a unit and adequate emergency reserves, Eskom does not expect to implement rotational loadshedding today. However, the generation plant remains unreliable and unpredictable and, the possibility remains that loadshedding may be implemented at short notice, should there be major changes in the generation system performance during the course of the day.
The pumped-storage schemes have recovered adequately, while an additional generation unit has successfully returned to service earlier this morning. Two more units are expected to return later in the day.
Unplanned outages or breakdowns, at 10 962MW as at 04:40 this morning, have stabilised, giving us some reprieve from loadshedding today. Planned maintenance is 5 937MW.

UPDATE: Stage 2 Loadshedding will stop at 17:00 today Saturday, 22 Feb 2020, and will resume on Sunday at 08:00

ESKOM POWER ALERT 1 Date: 22 February 2020 Rotational loadshedding will stop at 17:00 today, and will resume again on Sunday at 08:00 Saturday, 22 February 2020: Eskom will stop rotational loadshedding at 17:00 today, owing to an improved generation system performance, which has given us room to provide some relief to customers during the night. We will resume implementing rotational loadshedding on Sunday at 08:00. Two generation units have successfully returned to service earlier than expected this morning and the pumped-storage schemes have recovered adequately, setting us on a good course to full recovery by Monday morning.

💥LOADSHEDDING UPDATE THU 20 FEB 2020 – 17:20 💥
https://www.kimberley.org.za/?p=2615

ESKOM: Stage 2 rotational loadshedding active until 06:00 on Sunday 23 Feb 2020 owing to the loss of additional units that has increased the shortage in generation capacity.

💥LOADSHEDDING UPDATE THU 20 FEB 2020 – 09:00 💥
https://www.kimberley.org.za/?p=2615

ESKOM: Stage 2 rotational loadshedding active until 06:00 on Saturday 22 Feb 2020, with a high probability that loadshedding will continue over the weekend.

Stage 3 loadshedding to continue until 05:00 on Monday morning.
Yesterday morning (Saturday, 15/02/2020) on Stage 3 the blackouts of each area occurred two hours later than indicated on the Sol Plaatje Loadshedding Schedule.  Initial “unofficial” information was that the Stage 2 schedule + Geysers, but at 2 hours later slots, will be used for the day. A “new” Stage 3 schedule surfaced later the morning on social media with no indication where it originated from.

Then yesterday (15/02/2020) at 13:40 the Official Sol Plaatje Facebook Page posted:
“Eskom Power System Emergency update: 15/02/2020
Load shedding stage 3 from 09h00 15/02/2020 to 05h00 17/02/2020 and Load curtailment stage 3 from 09h30 15/05/2020 to 05h00 17/02/2020 will be implemented to stabilize the system. Stage 3 is actually stage 2 plus geysers. Your Eskom Customer Executive or Regional control center will contact you for further action. We regret the inconvenience”

However, feedback from the public indicated that the unconfirmed “New” Stage 3 Schedule was being used. For example at 20:00 last night Carters Glen went off according to the time slot indicated on the “New” Stage 3 Schedule.

At this time there is no confirmation whether the Stage 2 Schedule + Geysers or the unconfirmed “New” Stage 3 Schedule will be used today.

💥LOADSHEDDING UPDATE WED 05 FEB 2020 – 09:00 💥
https://www.kimberley.org.za/?p=2615

Stage 2 rotational loadshedding is currently being implemented until 06:00 tomorrow (Thursday, 6 Feb 2020), with no respite during morning and afternoon peak traffic periods. The situation will be reviewed on Thursday, 6 Feb 2020. 

💥LOADSHEDDING UPDATE MON 03 FEB 2020 – 00:00 💥
https://www.kimberley.org.za/?p=2615

Stage 2 rotational loadshedding will continue from 09:00 tomorrow on Monday until Thursday at 06:00, with respite between 06:00 to 09:00 each day, when possible

Sunday, 2 February 2020: Eskom is currently implementing Stage 2 rotational loadshedding until 06:00 tomorrow. Stage 2 loadshedding will resume from 09:00 until 06:00 on Tuesday and will continue until Thursday at 06:00. While rotational loadshedding is unavoidable, in an effort to minimise the impact on traffic, we will endeavor to provide a break in loadshedding from 06:00 to 09:00 each day in the week, when possible.
Unplanned outages or breakdowns were at 11 831MW as at 17:00 this afternoon. While good progress has been made in replenishing water for our pumped storage schemes, we have not fully replenished diesel for our open cycle gas turbines, necessitating that Stage 2 loadshedding be implemented during the week until Thursday. We will continue to monitor the system closely and will give periodic updates on the status of the power system as things may change at short notice.

ESKOM Stage 2 loadshedding will continue from 09:00 on FRI, 31 JAN 2020 to 06:00 on MON, 3 FEB 2020

ESKOM POWER ALERT 1 Date: 31 January 2020
Stage 2 loadshedding continues from 9:00 this morning
Friday, 31 January 2020: Eskom stopped stage 2 loadshedding at 6:00 this morning and will continue with stage 2 from 9:00 today (Friday) until 6:00 on Monday. This is due to a shortage of generation capacity and depleted emergency resources, which were used extensively to supplement capacity over the past few days. In addition, we are taking out three big units for planned maintenance today.
Unplanned outages were at 12 722 MW as at 05:30 this morning. We are monitoring the system closely and we will continue to give periodic updates on the status of the power system as things may change at short notice.
We apologise to South Africans for the negative impact this may have on them. We want to assure the nation that critical maintenance is being done to units on planned outages as well as some of those on unplanned outages to ensure their timeous return to service. We will use the weekend to replenish dam levels for pumped storage schemes and diesel for open cycle gas turbines.

💥LOADSHEDDING UPDATE THU 30 JAN 2020 – 15:15 💥

https://www.kimberley.org.za/?p=2615

ESKOM: Stage 2 loadshedding to continue until 06:00 on Friday, 10 JAN 2020

POWER ALERT 1 Date: 09 January 2020
Stage 2 loadshedding to continue until 06:00 on Friday
Thursday, 09 January 2020: The system remains severely constrained and unpredictable, and as such loadshedding stage 2 will unfortunately have to continue from 08:00 this morning until 06:00 tomorrow morning (Friday).
We have lost additional generation capacity overnight with breakdowns of over 14000MW. Our emergency reserves are also insufficient to meet the demand for electricity during the day. As a result we have to loadshed throughout the day until tomorrow.
Our teams continue to work tirelessly to return units from planned and unplanned outages. Owing to inadequate maintenance over a number of years, the system remains vulnerable to unplanned outages. We remind customers that loadshedding is an essential and controlled measure to ensure that the integrity of the grid is not compromised.

We will give South Africans regular updates about our prognosis for tomorrow and our recovery efforts for the rest of the week leading into the weekend.
We continue to ask customers to reduce demand as a concerted collective effort can help to avoid or reduce the level of loadshedding.

💥LOADSHEDDING UPDATE WED 08 JAN 2020 – 18:30 💥
https://www.kimberley.org.za/?p=2615

ESKOM declared Stage 2 loadshedding from 21:00 on WED, 8 JAN 2020 to 08:00 on THU, 09 JAN 2020..
