Electricity utility Eskom says it has returned some generation units to the grid, resulting in a suspension of enforced power cuts during most of Tuesday's work hours.

“As some units have returned since last night, there will be no load-shedding between 8am-4pm,” said Eskom.

“However, please note that load-shedding will be reduced to stage 1 from 4pm-10pm tonight.”

It added, “Eskom will continue to communicate any changes to the supply situation.”
