The power utility will, however, implement Stage 1 loading on Wednesday.

Having successfully returned four generation units to service today, Eskom has announced no load shedding will be implemented tonight as the generation capacity improved.

While two more units are expected to return to service tomorrow, another two units will be taken offline tonight for urgent maintenance. As a result, Stage 1 load shedding will be implemented from 4pm to 10pm on Wednesday, said the power utility.

“Eskom will continue to communicate timeously should there be any changes as the system remains unreliable and vulnerable. Unplanned breakdowns amount to 9424MW of capacity, adding to the 5,246MW currently out on planned maintenance.

“Eskom teams are working around the clock to return as many of these generation units to service as possible,” Eskom said in a statement.

The power utility has urged South Africans to continue using electricity sparingly in order to reduce the instance of load shedding.
