Eskom announced that loadshedding will be suspended from 8pm on Friday as generation capacity has sufficiently recovered.
In a statement, the power utility said: “Eskom is pleased to announce that load shedding will be suspended from 8pm this evening as generation capacity has sufficiently recovered and the demand reduces over the long weekend.
“Over the past 24 hours Eskom teams have returned three generation units to service. This, together with the expected long weekend demand, has sufficiently reduced the constraints on the system, allowing Eskom to suspend load shedding.”
The total breakdowns currently amount to 14 618MW while planned maintenance is 4 855MW of capacity.
“Eskom would like to remind customers and the public that load shedding is implemented as a last resort to maintain stability of the power system,” it adds.
