Eskom has scrapped Stage 6 power cuts for Friday night.
Instead, the utility will continue Stage 4 blackouts until 10pm.
The embattled power utility says due to lower than anticipated demand, blackouts will be lowered to Stage 2 until 7am on Saturday morning.
Then Stage 4 will be implemented from 7am until 10pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Eskom has thanked employees who have reported for duty following a wildcat strike.
The power utility is urging South Africans to use electricity sparingly.
