Eskom has urged the public to reduce their electricity usage substantially to avoid load shedding as the power grid is severely constrained.
Eskom says it does not expect to implement load shedding on Thursday but warns that the power grid remains vulnerable.
Eskom has suspended loadshedding from 8am this morning to 4pm this afternoon. However, power outages will resume at Stage 1 from 4pm until 10pm.
Eskom has downgraded loadshedding from Stage 2 to Stage 1, starting from 12:00 to 22:00 on Sunday night. The power utility says it will provide a further update on the status of the power grid later in the day.
The Eskom Board says it strongly supports the suspension of its Tutuka and Kendal Power Station managers pending disciplinary inquiries.
