Power Stability Leads Eskom to Continue Load-Shedding Suspension

Ongoing Respite from Power Cuts

Eskom has once again affirmed its decision to halt load shedding indefinitely, attributing this positive step to robust generation capacity and solid emergency reserves. The energy giant is optimistic about reinforcing the grid with an additional 1,150MW by Monday evening, 8 April 2024.

Key Updates:

  • Sustained Pause: The suspension marks 11 days of uninterrupted power supply, thanks to Eskom’s effective management strategies.
  • Energy Forecast: The expected peak demand for tonight stands at 25,224MW, with a forthcoming system review slated for Wednesday, 10 April.


  • Initial Break: Commencing 27 March 2024, the pause was a strategic response to reduced demand anticipated during the end-of-month holidays.
  • Extended Relief: Initially set for a short term, Eskom has progressively extended the suspension, citing continuous operational efficiency.

Continued Vigilance: Eskom remains on guard, ready to adjust its operations based on the evolving demand and supply dynamics, ensuring South Africans continue to enjoy a stable power supply amidst ongoing system improvements.
