Eskom has announced that it expects to suspend load shedding for the entirety of the coming weekend including Friday (today).
The State-owned power utility said on social media platform, X, that load shedding is expected to resume on Monday.
“The suspension of load shedding for more than three days is as a result of the continued good generation fleet performance and the expected lower weekend demand.
“Breakdowns have reduced to 12 925MW, whilst planned maintenance is at 4 889MW of generation capacity. A further update will be provided on Sunday afternoon. Eskom will communicate should any significant changes occur,” Eskom said.
