Due to the sustained improved performance of generation availability as well as the anticipated lower demand over the weekend, loadshedding will be suspended between 05:00 and 16:00 on Saturday and Sunday, Eskom said on Friday.
Stage 2 loadshedding will be implemented from 16:00 until 05:00 on both Saturday and Sunday.
On Friday, meanwhile, Stage 3 loadshedding will still be in place from 16:00 until 05:00 on Saturday.
Breakdowns are currently at 14 266MW of generating capacity while the capacity out of service for planned maintenance is 5 388MW, Eskom said.
Over the past 24 hours, a generating unit each at Arnot, Duvha, Ingula and Vanderkloof power stations was taken offline for repairs. In the same period, meanwhile, a generating unit at Hendrina Power Station was returned to service.
