Eskom has released a statement saying that will not be implementing load shedding on Sunday, although the system remains constrained and vulnerable.

“The power system is constrained and while we are making every effort to avoid load shedding, it could be implemented at short notice should there be a significant shift in plant performance and increased unplanned technical breakdowns,” said Eskom.

The power utility has advised that, as some parts of the country experience a heat wave, the use of air conditioners be set at 23 degrees.

“Eskom will be in a better position to provide a prognosis for tomorrow and the coming week after reviewing the performance of the electricity system this evening. We will continue to keep South Africans informed about the status of the electricity system and our recovery efforts,” concluded the statement.
