Eskom implements Stage 6 load shedding


Eskom will be implementing nightly Stage 6 load shedding as of 21:00 on Tuesday until 05:00 on Wednesday morning. Stage 4 follows daily from 05:00 until 16:00, with this pattern repeated until further notice.

Eskom made the announcement just before 20:00 on Tuesday. It says the escalation is due to seven units having tripped on Tuesday – with only three having been returned to service. Further, “the return to service of three other units has been delayed. Unit 1 of Matla Power Station will be shut down tonight to repair a boiler tube leak.”

The struggling power utility implemented record load shedding in 2022 which has continued every day thus far in 2023. According to load shedding app EskomSePush, SA has experienced 236 hours this year so far.
