The aim is to give some much-needed relief to South Africans nationwide.
Since Tuesday, loadshedding has been on stage 6 but this weekend a downgrade to stage 3 is likely to be implemented.
In a press conference held on 2 February 2023, the power utility company’s head of generation, Thomas Conradie, said, “As we foresee then for tomorrow we will revert to stage 4 load shedding and hopefully by Saturday to stage 3.”
“We will then assess the situation again to see units that have returned in order to look at next week’s outlook in terms of load shedding requirements and capacity availability.”
