The power system is currently stable and Eskom will be able to perform maintenance on a power station unit without implementing load shedding, the power utility said on Thursday morning.
The power system is expected to be constrained during the evening peak period from 5pm to 9pm as a result of increased electricity demand and a power station unit being on maintenance.
“As we are currently experiencing cold weather conditions across the country, we urge electricity users to consider energy efficient ways of keeping warm.
“In winter the electricity demand peaks in the morning and evening as more electricity is used during these times,” said Eskom.
It appealed to customers to continue to reduce their electricity usage throughout the day but to be aware of the need to save more during the peak periods from 6am to 10am and 5pm and 9pm. – SAnews.gov.za
