good news for sa on loadshedding

Power utility Eskom says that generating capacity has been stable this week, allowing it to keep suspending outages during the day. The group said that load shedding will continue to be suspended from midnight until 16h00 each day, and moving to stage 3 in the evenings (16h00 to 00h00) until further notice. No load shedding has been scheduled for Upington today. If the group can avoid any short-term shocks, this will make it the second week in a row that it has been able to suspend load shedding for extended periods. The utility first announced significant suspensions at the start of June – surprising many as June marks the first official month of winter. Eskom itself warned of grid pressure and tough times in winter. Residents are urged to continue to use water sparingly.
