Stage 2 load shedding expected on Sunday afternoon after suspension

Load shedding has been suspended until Sunday afternoon before Stage 2 power cuts kick in.

Eskom said load shedding was suspended due to the anticipated return of generating units that will increase available generating capacity.

The utility said it would provide an update for the week on Sunday.

“Eskom Power Station General Managers and their teams continue to work diligently to ensure that additional generating capacity is recovered by bringing units on unplanned outages, and planned maintenance back to service.

“A total of 2 560MW of generating capacity is anticipated to be returned to service by Monday,” said Eskom spokesperson Daphne Mokwena.
