Eskom has warned that there’s a strong possibility of load shedding for the next 18 hours, as it conducts critical maintenance to restore the ageing plants to good health.

The power utility also says it will continue to implement Stage 2 rotational load shedding on Sunday.

This as the power utility replenishes the emergency reserves which it used to supplement capacity during the week.

Eskom says its teams are working hard to reduce unplanned outages or breakdowns.

It says it will continue to conduct critical maintenance on units that are currently on planned outages.

Eskom says will provide an update on Sunday evening on the prognosis for next week.
