File: Eskom said the generation system is currently constrained as two more generation units broke down on Wednesday.
JOHANNESBURG - Eskom is reducing load-shedding from stage 2 to stage 1 from 12 pm on Saturday.
Earlier, Eskom dropped load-shedding from Stage 3 to Stage 2.
The embattled power utility says it's due to a drop in demand and an improving generation system.
Eskom implemented stage 4 load-shedding this week after its Koeberg Unit tripped.
It has since been brought back online.
South Africans are urged to continue using electricity sparingly.
