Parliament's Standing Committee on Public Accounts will next week conduct oversight visits to Eskom's mega power stations Kusile and Medupi.
South African environmental groups have challenged the government’s decision to grant permission for a water project which aims to supply developments for its future coal reserves.
In an internal memo circulated among Eskom employees about the generation recovery plan, Chief Operating Officer Jan Oberholzer said that the way forward for Medupi power station would be known before the end of March.
The area around coal-fired plants owned by South Africa's state power utility Eskom ranks as the world's second-largest hotspot of sulphur dioxide emissions, according to Greenpeace.
Even though Eskom has stopped load shedding, there is still a risk that the electricity system could change at short notice, said acting head of generation Andrew Etzinger.
South Africa has reached a point where electricity generated from new wind and solar power plants is 200% cheaper than electricity generated by Medupi and Kusile coal powered plants.
