No load shedding to continue into the weekend

Power utility Eskom says that load shedding will remain suspended until a further update is announced on Sunday.

Esom said Load shedding will remain suspended until further notice following nine consecutive days of non-implementation.

“This decision is a result of sustained available generation capacity and adequate emergency reserves,” it said.

Eskom added it would provide a system update on Sunday afternoon or communicate any significant changes should they occur.

The evening peak demand tonight is expected to reach 25 465MW.
