Load shedding reduced to Stage 5

Power utility Eskom has announced the reduction of load shedding by one stage.

This is after the power utility Eskom announced Stage 6 load shedding would be implemented indefinitely. The announcement was made after midnight on the early hours of Saturday.

In a statement, Eskom said in spite of returning two generating units to service in 24 hours, two generating units were also taken off-line.

“This, combined with the need to replenish the pumped storage dams in preparation for the week ahead, necessitated the implementation of Stage 6 load shedding from midnight until further notice.”

Eskom said its team were “working diligently” to return the generation units back online and would communicate any significant changes.

However, on Sunday Eskom announced power cuts reduced to Stage 5.
