JOHANNESBURG - Eskom says it does not expect to implement load-shedding on Sunday.
Eskom however, said load-shedding could be implemented on short notice.
Previously Eskom said it will resume load-shedding on Sunday at 8am.
Consumers breathed a sigh of relief after Eskom suspended rotational power cuts at 5pm on Saturday.
The embattled utility says two generation units successfully returned to service earlier than expected.
The possibility of increased power cuts remains over the next 18 months.
This as critical maintenance continues.
