The embattled power utility,Eskom said in a statement that there will be no load shedding on Wednesday.

It however warned that while there has been some improvement, load shedding could be implemented on short notice. 

"Unplanned outages or breakdowns were at 10 456 MW at 5:30m this morning."

The power utility will communicate if there is any change and provide a prognosis for Thursday, later today.

Eskom said it had stopped load shedding at 21:00 on Tuesday.

The power utility also reminded South Africans that there is a possibility of increased loadshedding over the next 18 months, as it is conducting "critical maintenance to restore the ageing plant to good health".     

Eskom has once again urged citizens to use electricity sparingly and to reduce demand during this period.
