NATIONAL NEWS - The power system remains severely constrained this morning with unplanned breakdowns above 12 000 MW.
While some generation units have returned from planned and unplanned maintenance, these are not sufficient to meet the current demand.
Eskom has since Monday, increased its usage of its pumped storage and diesel generators to keep the lights on.
The extensive use has led to a decline in the pumped storage water and diesel levels and a concerted effort is being made to replenish these reserves.
