In a statement on Sunday, power utility Eskom advised that, from 9am, load shedding would move back to stage 2 from stage 3.
It had escalated to stage 3 on Saturday morning because diesel reserves needed to be replenished and the pumped storage scheme needed to recover.
However, on Sunday, the utility advised that it had recovered some generation capacity, with four generating units returning to service overnight.
