JOHANNESBURG - Eskom said that it was not planning on implementing load shedding on Tuesday.

The utility said that its emergency reserves were at adequate levels for now, however, there's always the possibility that it could cut off your electricity.

"Some of our generating units have returned to service, helping to increase our capacity to generate power and to avoid load shedding."
