Johannesburg - The power grid was stable as the country moved into the long weekend, Eskom said on Saturday.

“The grid is stable, with ample generation capacity for the long weekend,” spokesman Andrew Etzinger said in a text message to Sapa.

On Friday, Etzinger said deliberate power cuts became necessary on Thursday evening due to constraints on the power system.

However, deliberate power cuts over the weekend appeared unlikely, he said at the time.

“At this stage, the grid is stable.”

Generally, the power system was under the greatest pressure on weekday evenings between 5pm and 9pm, said Etzinger. - Sapa
