According to Brian Dames, Eskom CEO in a press release quoted in the African Utility Week earlier this month, the utility will not by carrying out any further planned load-shedding.
However, this does not mean that there will be unplanned electricity cuts caused by load shedding due to high demand in the country over the next few months. The hot weather in the Cape and elsewhere in the country is not helping the situation much either, as the demand of air conditioning starts to soar.
During autumn 2010, there were a number of blackouts in the East Rand and elsewhere, so it is clear that our electricity supply is under increasing pressure - despite savings and energy conservation measures.
In addition, consumers and business also need to consider the shocking history of price hikes in electricity - 268% over the past 3-4 years. Yet another 25% is in the pipeline in the next few months.
Homes and businesses therefore need to seriously consider saving at least 40 - 50% off their electricity bills. If we can do this, we will greatly minimise the chances of load shedding.
