Eskom says maintenance on the power grid will continue over the long weekend, but overall unplanned outages have decreased drastically for the first time in years. The utility has managed to avoid load shedding for several months now, focusing on maintenance and its build programme.

Over the last 7 months, we have not had load shedding and the reason for this primarily is that we have been doing a lot of maintenance on our power generating unit and by virtue of us doing more maintenance it means that we are avoiding the out planned outages”, Khulu Phasiwe of Eskom explained.

Which is why over the last 7 months, the power system has been relatively stable”, He added.

This weekend which is a long weekend we’re are going to do another round of what we call a maintenance festival”, He concluded.
