Due to the failure of additional power-generating units and the delay in returning other units to service, Eskom announces load-shedding to stage 6 from 16:00 on Sunday, 7 May 2023, and expects to continue implementing this level of power cuts throughout the coming weeks.
“This is the first winter Eskom will enter with its Koeberg nuclear power station completely offline,” Bheki Nxumalo said, Eskom’s head of generation. He also said the power utility’s lack of generation capacity would likely make for a challenging winter this year.
Switching out certain home appliances or optimizing their consumption may help you survive power cuts or slash your electric bills. Yet, you can also make arrangements for alternative energy suppliers, such as a solar generator, to fend off load-shedding in the upcoming winter.
For many, that means equipping their homes with backup power sources and renewable energy. The leader- BLUETTI, in solar energy-powered generators, has a new model offering incredible power in a modular and mobile package.
