Breakdowns are currently at 14 489MW of generating capacity while 6 190MW of generating capacity is out of service for planned maintenance.
During the last 24 hours three generation units were returned to service at Hendrina, Majuba and Tutuka power stations.
In the same period, a generating unit at Arnot, Camden, Kriel and Tutuka power stations were taken offline for repairs.
The delays in returning units to service at Duvha and Medupi power stations continue.
We thank all South Africans for continuing to use electricity sparingly to help alleviate the pressure on the power system.
