There is no load shedding planned for this evening, Eskom said on Monday.
“There is no load shedding planned for this evening as Eskom has adequate generating capacity to meet the demand,” it said.
However, the power utility added that the power system is expected to be constrained during the evening peak period (5pm – 9pm), mainly due to increased electricity demand.
“We urge all customers to continue using electricity sparingly at all times to enable the technicians to carry out the requisite maintenance of our power generating units.”
Commercial customers, particularly shopping centres and office blocks, can also make a big difference by switching off non-essential lights and not leaving office equipment such as photocopiers and computers in standby mode after hours.
