Eskom: All OK, but keep on saving

Dec 18 2014 17:23

Johannesburg - Eskom has called on all customers to reduce electricity usage, especially in the early evening (17:30 - 18:30).

It said power supply was expected to remain constrained but stable the rest of the week, as well as over the rest of the festive season.

The utility said the risk of load shedding was low, but the system remained vulnerable, meaning that any extra load or faults in the system might necessitate the need to implement load shedding.

It said with many industries winding down for the festive season, coupled with the return to service of some of the power generating units and building up of emergency reserves, Eskom was cautiously confident that it would be able to meet the demand during the holidays.
