Loadshedding remains suspended 'until further notice'

Power utility Eskom continues to suspend rolling blackouts until further notice.


In a short statement on Sunday, Eskom spokesperson Daphne Mokwena said the suspension of load shedding was due to the sustained available generation capacity, adequate emergency reserves, and anticipated lower demand at the beginning of the week ahead.

This comes after Eskom on Friday announced the suspension of blackouts.

Mokwena says Eskom will provide a system update on Wednesday or communicate any significant changes should they occur.

"Currently, unplanned unavailability stands at 13 579MW, while planned maintenance accounts for 7 046MW of generating capacity. A total of 3 550MW is planned to be returned to service by Tuesday evening. The evening peak demand tonight is expected to reach 23 400MW."
