Eskom says the pre-emptive load shedding over the last two weeks has allowed South Africa to avoid an overall National Blackout.

The power grid was severely strained due to dwindling diesel and water reserves, rain and power station maintenance.

The power utility has built up enough reserves to meet this week and weekends energy demands.

Business and consumers are still requested to use electricity sparingly to help ensure a week without rolling blackouts.

Forecast for the week

Please note that these are estimates and will likely differ from the actual figures
Peak demand and available capacity for the rest of this week is forecast at:

Monday 1 December: The capacity available to meet this evening’s peak demand is 30 984 MW (including open cycle gas turbines) while demand is forecast 30 635 MW. Current planned maintenance stands at 4 895 MW. Unplanned outages are 7 602 MW.

Tuesday (2 December): The capacity available to meet tomorrow’s evening peak demand is 31 407 MW (including open cycle gas turbines) while demand is forecast 30 245 MW.

Wednesday (3 December): The capacity available to meet that evening’s peak demand is 31 217 MW (including open cycle gas turbines) while demand is forecast 30 443 MW.

Thursday (4 December): The capacity available to meet that evening’s peak demand is 31 217 MW (including open cycle gas turbines) while demand is forecast 30 295 MW.

The demand in electricity tends to decrease from Friday, going into the weekend.
The capacity available from Friday, through to Sunday, is therefore expected to meet forecast demand as follows

Friday (5 December): The capacity available to meet that evening’s peak demand is 30 757 MW (including open cycle gas turbines) while demand is forecast 29 123 MW.

Saturday (6 December): The capacity available to meet that evening’s peak demand is 30 757 MW (including open cycle gas turbines) while demand is forecast 28 236 MW.

Sunday (7 December): The capacity available to meet that evening’s peak demand is 30 803 MW (including open cycle gas turbines) while demand is forecast 28 210 MW.
