Eskom has announced it will suspend power cuts on Saturday at 5pm, but load shedding will resume on Sunday at 8am.
The power utility says it expects to make a full recovery by Monday.
"Two generation units have successfully returned to service earlier than expected this morning and the pumped-storage schemes have recovered adequately, setting us on a good course to full recovery by Monday morning."
