Port Elizabeth - Eskom announced on Friday that due to a minor improvement in generation and lower electricity demand on Friday, it was load shedding below Stage 2, although Stage 1 rotational load-shedding was in place.
"Should the situation change, we will communicate accordingly," Eskom said in a statement.
The power utility said that although Stage 1 rotational load shedding was almost certain that on Saturday, it was not anticipating load shedding on Sunday.
"From Monday, 10 December to Thursday, 13 December, there is a high probability that Stage 2 load shedding will be implemented in order deal with the anticipated rise in electricity demand during the week whilst our maintenance teams are tirelessly working round the clock to return the generating units back online,"
Eskom said that the closure of industries and many businesses for the festive break also meant that in the period between 14 December and 13 January 2019, no load-shedding was expected.
