Load Shedding to be Suspended at 8pm on Sunday

Eskom said it will suspend load shedding from 8pm on Sunday night.

The power utility said there has been a sufficient recovery in generation capacity.

Spokesperson Sikonthi Mantshantsha said total breakdowns have been reduced to 12 422MW while planned maintenance is 6 540MW of capacity.

“Since Friday, Eskom teams have returned four generation units to service. The emergency generation reserves have also sufficiently recovered. Eight other generating units are expected to return to service by Wednesday evening. The system will remain constrained on Monday and Tuesday and it is expected that extensive use of emergency reserves will be required ahead of the units returning.”

Eskom has apologised for the load shedding and also urged all South Africans to continue using electricity sparingly.
