Breakdowns have increased to 15 777MW of generating capacity while 6 122MW of generating capacity is out of service for planned maintenance.
Over the past 24 hours three generation units were returned to service at Duvha, Kendal and Kriel power stations.
In the same period, a generating unit at Kendal, Kriel and Majuba power stations were taken offline for repairs. The delays in returning units to service at Duvha, Hendrina, Kriel, Majuba, Medupi and Tutuka power stations continue.
We thank all South Africans for continuing to use electricity sparingly to help alleviate the pressure on the power system.
