Eskom says while its generation capacity has recovered, there is still a possibility of load shedding as it implement reliability maintenance.

The country was saddled with stage two blackouts between 9pm on Tuesday night and 5am on Wednesday morning which frustrated the Muslim community as they began the holy month of Ramadan.

In a statement, the power utility says

No loadshedding is expected on Wednesday as the generation capacity has sufficiently recovered overnight.

“A generation unit each at the Tutuka, Duvha, Medupi and Hendrina Power Stations successfully returned to service, helping to boost generation capacity. A further two generation units are expected to return to service later today. Emergency generation reserves were also sufficiently replenished. As previously communicated, the possibility of load shedding remains elevated while Eskom continues to implement reliability maintenance, and as such the system will continue to be constrained during this period.”

Eskom has urged the public to continue using electricity sparingly as the system remains vulnerable and unpredictable.
