Uninterrupted Service: Eskom’s Load-Shedding Break Continues Indefinitely

Power Relief Extended

Eskom brings welcome news to South Africans, extending its load-shedding suspension indefinitely after more than a week of uninterrupted power supply.

Key Points:

  • Ongoing Pause: The power cuts have been halted for nine straight days, with no immediate plans to resume.
  • Power Stability: This period of relief is credited to consistent generation capacity and ample emergency reserves.

Updates and Forecasts:

  • Next Announcement: Eskom is set to share more information by Sunday, 7 April 2024, or notify the public of any critical changes.
  • Demand Insights: Friday evening’s power demand is expected to peak at 25,465MW.


  • The break in load-shedding, initiated on 27 March 2024, was initially aligned with the lower demand anticipated over March’s long weekends.
  • Originally set to conclude on 31 March, the suspension has since seen multiple extensions thanks to favorable power generation conditions.

Recent Developments:

  • On 3 April, Eskom confirmed the ongoing suspension, highlighting efficient generation and reserve management as key factors.

Eskom’s successful management of the power grid has provided a respite from the frequent outages, with a focus on maintaining stability and meeting the country’s energy needs efficiently.
