Eskom Extends Load Shedding Suspension to Monday: Improved Generation Performance

Eskom, the South African power utility, has once again extended the suspension of load shedding, allowing for an extra day of uninterrupted power supply across the country. This decision is attributed to the improved performance of Eskom’s generation fleet and the full recovery of its emergency reserves.
