Eskom warns generation system that likely to remain limited for the next two days – SABC News

Eskom has warned that its generation system on Monday and Tuesday is likely to remain limited.

The energy company suspended rolling blackouts from 8pm Sunday night.

This followed almost a week of rolling blackouts.

Some areas, including Randburg in Johannesburg, were left without power for nearly 48 hours when local technical faults occurred during the rolling blackouts.

Eskom spokeswoman Sikonathi Mantshatsha says there has been enough recovery in generation capacity to make it possible to stop the rolling blackouts.

SA, SADC work together to ensure reliable energy supply

President Cyril Ramaphosa said South Africa is working with other countries to ensure a reliable energy supply in the SADC region.

Ramaphosa said this at the Presidential Imbizo in the Northwest on Saturday. The Imbizo aimed to look at the challenges facing South Africans and it was no surprise that the problems of electricity outages as well as expected higher fuel prices were high on the agenda.

President Cyril Ramaphosa pointed out that South Africa sells electricity to neighboring countries, including Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Botswana and Lesotho, but insists that these peoples consume only a fraction of what the South African economy does.

“So, the electricity we sell to them is very minimal and they pay consistently. So if we go through our own blackouts, the electricity we sell to them will also decrease a bit. But over time, Mozambique will become a become major producers of electricity, such as Namibia.
