The fuel system has recovered sufficiently.
Eskom announced on Saturday morning that it will suspend load shedding at 12 noon.
This is due to the fact that the fuel system has sufficiently recovered.
The generating units of the Matla, Majuba, Grootvlei and Kendal power plants, as well as the non-commercial unit of Kusile, returned to service on Saturday morning. Another unit each at the Matimba and Arnot plants is expected to return to service on the same day.
In addition, the emergency reserves have been adequately replenished and are available to support the system next week.
“Although we have reported these generators, the onset of winter has seen an increase in demand and this will lead to a captive system throughout the winter. We therefore urge all South Africans to continue to use electricity sparingly,” he cautioned. Eskom.
