Touch and go for weekend power


Power supply will remain extremely constrained over the weekend but no blackouts are expected, Eskom said on Friday.

“The forecast for the weekend and the coming week indicates that the system will remain extremely constrained,” it said in a statement.

“The electricity supply system is still tight but stable and no load shedding is expected.”

However, extra loads or faults could result in rolling blackouts.

Eskom was making progress with planned maintenance, but it urged customers to save electricity.  — Sapa

  1. As a user of a direct supply of power from Eskom I am concerned not only about availability of supply but also the quality. Our National supply voltage is 220/230 and I believe should be supplied within those voltage ranges. Here in Henley on Klip the voltage is consistently above 240 volts and at times approaches 250v. I’ve brought this matter to Eskom’s attention by email but have not yet had a reply. My concern is the effect on connected appliances’ life span and would appreciate feedback from other direct Eskom users on the voltage supplied in their area.
