Wednesday, 24 June 2020: Eskom wishes to appeal to the public to continue reducing electricity consumption during the peak hours tonight as the generation system is currently constrained.
While some generation units were returned to service last night, breakdowns occurred at a further two generation units today.

Eskom’s teams are working hard to return to service the two units that tripped today at Medupi and Matimba power stations, adding to the breakdowns and taking off a unit to deal with emissions requirements at Kendal, Majuba and Lethabo yesterday.
While the system remains constrained, we hope to avoid load shedding, with the help of the people of South Africa.

Eskom urges the public to use electricity sparingly by switching off non-essential appliances in order to maintain the integrity of the system.
With your assistance yesterday, we successfully managed to meet the peak demand, and for that we thank the public.
