The power utility will give an update on Wednesday.

In the meantime, it's encouraging all South Africans to reduce electricity.

On a positive note, the first of seven generating units returned to service on Saturday evening.

The remaining units are hoped to return to service over the next eight days.

A generating unit each at Duvha, Kendal, Komati, Kusile, Matimba, Lethabo and Tutuka power stations was taken offline for repairs.
