Eskom says new breakdowns is straining the power system

Eskom says new breakdowns is straining the power systemThe power body, Eskom appealed to its customers on Thursday afternoon to reduce their electricity consumption,

It complained that the power system is “currently constrained”.

This is after the breakdown of some generation unit

The power utility in a statement said: “Two generation units were forced to shut down over the past 24 hours, adding to those currently on breakdown and on planned maintenance”.

It explained that the sudden breakdowns amounted to 10,305MW of generation capacity while another 5,903MW was out on planned maintenance.

“Should there be any significant increase in breakdowns, load-shedding may have to be implemented at short notice.”

“Eskom teams are working around the clock to return as many of these generation units to service as possible.”

The utility body indicated that despite the fact that it did not talk about implementing load-shedding on Thursday evening and Friday, customers should still reduce their electricity consumption.
