Eskom said there was a low risk of load-shedding on Monday.

“We continue to encourage residents and businesses to please use electricity sparingly to ease the demand of electricity. Please switch off geysers as well as all non-essential lighting and electricity appliances to assist in reducing demands,” the power utility tweeted.

Eskom said last week that its power systems remained volatile ahead of the weekend, when it needed to replenish emergency reserves of water and diesel.
