As SA heads into winter months where the country usually experiences high electricity demand and usage, questions has already arisen as to whether the Power Utility will be able to maintain a constant and uninterrupted supply of electricity.
State power utility Eskom told Parliament that the country’s electricity grid was “stable”, as SA heads into the winter months when electricity usage increases.
At a briefing before the standing committee on appropriations on Thursday, Eskom board member Neli Magubane addressed concerns that the electricity system is constrained and there may be a possibility of load shedding.
“Some media reports talk of a constrained system and are asking questions of load shedding. We would like to state the electricity grid is stable,” she told the committee.
