Saw a handy hint from the Citizen today – we may have just escaped Load Shedding this week, but tonight and Thursday could be tight:
“Demand for Tuesday and Wednesday evening peak periods were expected to reach 32 830 MW while supply was expected to flounder at just under 32 300 MW – a hefty 530 MW gap that the utility was unlikely to fill.
The gap is expected to widen on Thursday, making load shedding even more of a possibility.
While Fridays normally bring welcomed relief, the utility said that the system would remain “constrained” this Friday.
The situation would likely only stabilise on the weekend, Eskom’s status report noted.”
