Eskom has announced enhancements to its digital platforms, including a new chatbot called Alfred to report faults and an upgraded customer portal and app….
Monday will be free of load shedding according to Eskom, after the utility returned four generating plants to working order on Sunday.
It’s a big bump, and a needed one as well.
Unplanned outages increased on Sunday to 11 205 MW, while maintenance is rendering just over 6 000 MW offline too.

It’s one of the more positive updates we’ve seen from Eskom in a while, which had to implement Stage 2 load shedding at the end of last week due to a shortage in capacity.
