Eskom has announced that it won’t be load shedding on Sunday (22 February) morning, following a full day of rolling blackouts on Saturday.

However, the likelihood of load shedding later in the day remains medium to high, as the grid remains under pressure.

“Due to additional power station units returning to service overnight, please note that there will be no load shedding this morning,” Eskom said.

“The prognosis for load shedding this evening is medium to high depending on the performance of our electricity generating plant.”

On Saturday, Eskom reduced its load shedding schedule to stage one.

The power utility said it had initially planned to implement stage two power cuts but some generating units that had to undergo maintenance had come back online over Friday night.

That one you should direct to City Power. They decide on the blocks to be affected. And yes, this sucks.
