Eskom will continue with stage 3 load-shedding on Wednesday between 08:00 and 23:00 as it continues to battle capacity shortages.
The power utility said in an early morning statement that a number of generating units were still out of service due to breakdowns.
It said despite some units returning to service as planned and some replenishment of diesel supplies, its water and diesel emergency reserves were still “very low”.
State 3 load shedding allows for up to 3000 MW to be shed from the national grid.
