Saturday, 05 June 2021: With an adequate improvement in generation reserves during the past 24 hours loadshedding will be suspended from 22:00 tonight. In order to continue with the replenishment of the emergency generation reserves in preparation for the week ahead, Stage 1 loadshedding will again be implemented between 17:00 and 22:00 on Sunday night.
The power system remains constrained and vulnerable and Eskom will communicate promptly should there be any changes. These capacity constraints will continue for the foreseeable future and all South Africans are urged to reduce their use of electricity, particularly between 17:00 and 22:00, when the winter demand is the highest.
Eskom apologises for the inconvenience and uncertainty caused by these interruptions in electricity supply.
