Eskom has announced that while load shedding will be suspended at 8pm on Friday night, stage one load shedding will be implemented on Saturday and Sunday from 5pm to 8pm to replenish emergency reserves.”

The power utility the supply constraints has eased during the past two days.

Eskom implemented stage three and stage four load shedding this week as it battled to meet generation capacity.

Spokesperson Sikonathi Mantshantsha says sufficient progress has been made in replenishing the emergency generation reserves to allow Eskom  to lift the load shedding earlier than initially planned.

“A number of additional generation units are expected to return to service during the weekend. However, in order to continue to replenish the emergency reserves, it is still necessary to implement Stage 1 load shedding between 17:00 and 20:00 on Saturday and Sunday.”

Manstshantsha says the supply outlook for the coming week is expected to improve as additional generation units are planned to return to service.
