Cape Town – There likely will be no load shedding until at least May 2016, Eskom CEO Brian Molefe said on Wednesday.
While maintenance on Eskom's ageing fleet has been increased, the power utility has managed to stave off implementing load shedding for more than 80 days.
“We are doing all that maintenance without load shedding,” Molefe said. “We will step up our maintenance in December as everyone goes on holiday. We will add quite a lot of units to the maintenance programme to catch up on backlog.
