South Africa’s electricity minister, Dr Kgosientsho Ramokgopa, has identified Hendrina, Tutuka, and Kusile power stations as the country’s best opportunity to eliminate load-shedding.

The power stations have an installed capacity of 8,854 MW, which is equivalent to eight load-shedding stages. Eskom has recently toured the power stations and engaged with their management to understand their issues better. Ramokgopa identified Tutuka as the second most problematic power station plagued with corruption, and Kusile as the worst-performing power station due to technical and structural problems. Ramokgopa aims to have all three power stations running optimally, eliminating three load-shedding stages by the end of the year.
