Eskom does not expect to implement loadshedding during the Covid-19 national lockdown, it said on Wednesday, but the possibility that loadshedding may be implemented remained

“As an essential and critical services supplier, some of Eskom’s personnel are exempt from the provisions of the lockdown. As such, we do not expect any impediments to the generation and supply of electricity during this period.

“Our suppliers, particularly the coal mines, logistics suppliers and those supplying the parts and maintenance services at our power stations, will be able to operate through the lockdown,” said the power utility via a statement.

Unplanned outages or breakdowns were at 12 175MW at 16:20 on Wednesday, while planned maintenance outages were at 4 256MW.

“Eskom invites all stakeholders to partner with us, through co-operation and responsible management of electricity consumption, so that we may soon emerge from these difficult times of supply constraints. We thank you for your co-operation and understanding so far,” said the company.
