Load shedding to remain suspended 'until further notice'

Eskom said on Friday that the dreaded rolling blackouts would remain suspended until further notice.

Eskom: Stage 3 load shedding from 4pm

In a short statement, the utility’s spokesperson, Daphne Mokwena, said the suspension of load shedding was due to the sustained available generation capacity, adequate emergency reserves, and anticipated lower demand.

The power utility has not implemented load shedding for the past 9 days.

“Eskom will 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,” said Mokwena.

Meanwhile, the South African Weather Service has warned South Africans to brace for heavy rains and cold weather over the weekend, which might increase the demand for electricity.
