No loadshedding was implemented today, however the risk of loadshedding for tomorrow and the weekend remains high
Thursday, 28 February 2019: No loadshedding was implemented today due to some generating units returning to service.
 
As the power system remains tight and volatile, the risk of rotational loadshedding remains high for tomorrow as well as for the weekend when we need to replenish emergency reserves (water and diesel) to limit the possibility of loadshedding in the following week.
 
Our maintenance teams continue to work around the clock to bring units back online.
 
Eskom would like to thank its customers for using electricity sparingly. We will keep customers informed if there are any changes to the system.
