However, several areas in and around Johannesburg have been experiencing power outages on Tuesday.
This is a localised problem that City Power is dealing with.
Eskom spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe says at this stage the national grid is coping.
“We don’t have any major problems on our system. As a matter of fact, on Monday night with the cold front beginning to bite on many parts of the country, we were generating about 36,000 megawatts and the demand on the system was of course about 32,000. So, we’re seating comfortably with a reserve of 4,000 megawatts.”
