Despite South Africa reaching 100 days of no load shedding, President Cyril Ramaphosa stressed that it doesn’t mean that government can relax.

This, as the country’s electricity system remains vulnerable and the possibility of further power outages cannot be ruled out.

President Ramaphosa says while the milestone is welcomed, it should provide government with encouragement to do more, and to work faster to ensure a secure supply of electricity now and in the future.

The president adds that the country has seen real progress in the implementation of the Energy Action Plan, which was initiated in July 2022.

Last week, Eskom successfully commissioned Unit 5 at the Kusile power station, adding an additional 800 MW to the grid. It follows the power utility’s work to return three units at Kusile power station to service ahead of schedule.
