Load Shedding Suspension Continues Until Further Notice



load shedding remains suspended

Load shedding remains suspended, bringing relief to South Africans as Eskom announced its decision to continue the suspension until further notice on Wednesday.

IOL reports that according to Eskom spokesperson Daphne Mokwena, the generation grid remains stable due to sustained available capacity, ample emergency reserves, and anticipated moderate demand for the upcoming week. Mokwena mentioned that an update would be provided later this week, with Eskom scheduled to issue a system update on Friday or communicate significant changes promptly.

The power utility outlined plans to reintroduce 2,365MW of capacity by Friday evening while prioritising planned maintenance to enhance fleet reliability. Mokwena noted that the evening peak demand was projected to reach 27,613MW.

Initially suspended until March 31 following Stage 2 load shedding, the continuation was attributed to sustained generation capacity.


President Cyril Ramaphosa’s recent announcement focused on the proposed gas power plant Eskom in Mosselbay and the pumped hydro storage facility in Limpopo, among the 12 projects proposed for project preparation. These projects address vital infrastructure requirements, stimulate economic growth, and create jobs.
