Load shedding is not likely to occur this winter.
That is according to Eskom acting CEO, Phakamani Hadebe. The power utility gave a quarterly update on the state of the system at a media briefing on Thursday, 3 May. Hadebe and other officials gave the assurance that Eskom is taking steps to manage a shift in plant performance and coal stock levels in order to mitigate the risk of load shedding.
“Plans are in place to improve stockpile levels at the power stations that are currently below minimum stock levels. We think holding all things constant, we are not going to have load shedding,” he said.
