Lightbulb Electricity demand to increase

While the system is stable, the demand for electricity is expected to increase due to cold weather predicted for Gauteng, says Eskom.

“The system is stable, but still tight over the evening peak. The demand is expected to increase into the week, due to cold weather forecasted for Gauteng,” said the power utility in its system status bulletin on Monday.

Last week, the weather service warned of cold weather due to a cold front.

Eskom called on consumers to pull together to help beat the peak over the next month by using electricity sparingly, particularly from 5pm to 9pm.

“We request all electricity customers to save at least 10% of their electricity usage and sustain these savings. Residential and commercial customers can make the biggest difference by switching off geysers and pool pumps during peak hours (5pm – 9pm),” it said. –
