Eskom will implement Stage 1 load shedding between 5pm and 8pm on Saturday and Sunday.
After a week of various load shedding stages, Eskom suspended rotational power cuts on Friday night.
The power utility says its supply constraints have been eased during the past few days and emergency generation reserves have been replenished.
While Eskom customers will be on Stage 1 in the evenings, City-supplied customers will be protected from load shedding for the rest of the weekend.

Once you have your area number, click it below to confirm your status on CapeTalk's Loadshedding Pages:
If you are unsure of your area, have a look at EWN's Cape Town load shedding map.
Residents are urged to take note of the load shedding schedules each day while load shedding is active.
Eskom-supplied areas are subject to all load shedding while the City of Cape Town customers might face lower stage shedding or avoid it for shorter periods.
Be aware that Eskom's load-shedding schedule and the City of Cape Town's schedule may differ. At times, the City will only implement stage 1 or not implement at all if it has additional capacity when Eskom is, in fact, at stage 2.
Residents can check the load shedding status depending on their location on the area map here.
Eskom customers can also type in their area on the Eskom website for their schedule.
Neighbourhoods are demarcated using numbers 1 to 16 on the area map.
Residents are advised to switch off and unplug all electronics and appliances ahead of scheduled load shedding.
If your electricity remains off for longer than the scheduled period, SMS the City’s technical centre on 31220.
