No stage 4 load shedding on Saturday


Eskom says the slight improvement in power generation capacity, as well as the recovery of emergency reserves for the coming week, means that it does not have to introduce phase 4 load shedding at 16:00 on Saturday afternoon.

The power supplier had earlier indicated that phase 4 load shedding would apply from Saturday afternoon at 16:00 until Sunday morning at 05:00.

Phase 3 load shedding remains in effect until Sunday afternoon at 4pm when phase 4 load shedding will be applied.

Eskom is closely monitoring the power system and will provide information as soon as any changes occur.
