Load shedding has been suspended

Load shedding has been suspended, according to Eskom this is due to a marginal improvement in the generation capacity.

While rolling power cuts have been suspended for now, the power untility warned elevated risk of blackouts remains as the system is still constrained.

In its statement released on Sunday it said Eskom currently has 4 331MW on planned maintenance, while another 13 805MW of capacity is unavailable due to breakdowns.

Eskom stated that they will closely monitor the power grip while also appealing to all South Africans to help limit the usage of electricity and to switch off all non-essential items.

 “We would like to remind the public that load shedding is implemented only as a last resort to protect the national grid. We therefore urge all South Africans to continue using electricity sparingly especially between 05:00 – 09:00 in the mornings and 16:00 – 22:00 in the evenings” said Eskom.
