Kelvin power station made the news last week after Johannesburg's power utility said it would stop implementing load shedding after it reached a deal with the power plant to boost supply. 

Kelvin, which is in Kempton Park, Johannesburg, is the country's sole privately-owned coal-fired power plant.

On Sunday, City Power Johannesburg said it would stop cutting power to its customers as directed by Eskom as it had secured "additional power supply capacity" from the power station. But after Eskom warned that the utility's plans could put the national grid in jeopardy, City Power quickly backed down.
