South Africa’s Current State of power and why you should invest in an alternative power system now!
10 August 2022
Power utility Eskom has already exceeded its worst-case scenario for load shedding in South Africa, with warnings that worse is still to come.
South Africa’s Power
At the group’s quarterly media briefing in March, Eskom presented three scenarios for the period 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023.
- The base scenario of 10,000MW to 12,000MW of generating capacity being unavailable.
- The second scenario of 12,000MW to 13,500MW being offline
- The worst-case scenario of 13,500MW to 15,000MW going down.
In the worst-case scenario presented by the power company, South Africa would experience 295 days of load shedding over the period. In May, it projected 22 days of load shedding, not going beyond stage 2.
According to the City Press, Eskom’s own projections point to even more outages in the coming months, with stage 3 or stage 4 load shedding anticipated in September.
It is painfully clear that the country’s power crisis will continue and may worsen before it gets better, which is why investing in an alternative power system, particularly those propelled by solar and battery, makes a lot of sense.
