Eskom, a South African energy company, said Wednesday morning that it was able to bring all units back online. The company has developed a contingency plan while the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) started a one-day national strike.
The energy company warned that restrictions on access to electricity are still possible in the country, despite the temporarily established operation of the system.
Eskom is currently working with lawyers and the police in case of a threat to power plants.
The South African electricity supplier’s press office said that Eskom will continue to carry out a stage 3 load shedding during the day.
NOTICE: Due to the shortage of generating capacity, Eskom will continue to implement stage 3 loadshedding today, 13 February 2019, from 08:00 until 23:00.
Please switch off all non-essential appliances in order to reduce pressure on the national grid.
