Eskom makes it 65 days of no load shedding

OCTOBER 13, 2015

Eskom on Tuesday morning said that there was a low chance of it resorting to load shedding as the power grid was stable. Except for two hours and twenty minutes, the power utility has now not implemented load shedding for consecutive 65 days - an unprecedented feat in the past 12 months when it re-introduced rolling blackouts.

The power utility however warned of rising summer temperatures placing strain on the power system.

"As daytime temperatures begin to rise, especially between 10am and 5pm, we urge all South Africans to partner with us to save 10% of their electricity usage throughout the day," it appealed.
