No load shedding on Christmas Day - Eskom

Eskom has somewhat given South Africans a Christmas present – a reprieve of load shedding.

The embattled parastatal suspended rolling power cuts at 5a.m on Sunday until 5a.m on Monday.

However, Stage 2 load shedding will be implemented until 16:00 on Tuesday, whereafter Stage 3 load shedding will then be implemented.

Eskom’s spokesperson, Sikonathi Manthantsha says the suspension of load shedding on Christmas day is only possible due to the lower demand for electricity

‘’Eskom appeals to all electricity users to conserve as much electricity as possible during this period.’’

Manthanthsa warned that the situation could change at short notice.

‘’The generation fleet remains unpredictable and vulnerable. Should there be multiple failures of generators, a higher stage of loadshedding may need to be implemented at short notice.’’
