Electricity supply will be extremely tight from April to July, Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba said in Johannesburg on Tuesday.

"As we are heading to winter, I would like to urge that electricity be used carefully," he said at a briefing by Eskom on the state of its system.

He said improvement of Eskom's maintenance practices was moving in the right direction.

"This will eventually ensure long-term security of reliable electricity supply."

He urged the country to continue supporting Eskom's effort to "keep the lights on".

"No effort is insignificant in this regard." - Sapa
