JOHANNESBURG (CAJ News) – ESKOM has reported stability in the power system, which would enable it perform maintenance without load shedding.

 However, the power system is expected to be constrained throughout the day mainly as a result of increased electricity demand.

“As we are currently experiencing cold weather conditions across the country, we urge electricity users to consider energy efficient ways of keeping warm,” Eskom stated on Thursday

In winter the electricity demand peaks in the morning and evening as more electricity is used during these times.

“We appeal to all our customers to continue to reduce their electricity usage throughout the day but to be aware of the need to save more during the peak periods,” Eskom appealed.

Peak periods are from 600hrs to 1000hrs in the mornings and 1700hrs to 2100 hrs in the evenings.
