SA’s Current State of power and why you should invest in an alternative power system now!

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.

These were:

  • 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.

Everything about Greenhouse Solar is amazing. The initial consultation, design of the system (set up for scaling up in the future), and after sales service is exceptional. The 24/7 helpline is handy to have for troubleshooting, although, due to the high-end components used (Victron, FreedomWon, JA panels), issues have been non-existent since I had the system been installed. The annual maintenance call-out is a great value-add, too. With solar becoming an essential option for many, it's critical to get the right advice and have the installation done to code. I highly recommend Greenhouse.

The folks at GreenHouse did a sterling job installing an upgrade to my home solar system. They knew that it would be challenging to sort out the comms between the Victron equipment and the SMA inverter but in the end their team made it look easy.

Absolutely satisfied with the service received from GreenHouse. From quote by Ethanne to installation by Mike and his team all were done professionally and efficiently. I highly recommend GreenHouse to walk the solar journey with you… After a year of absolutely no issues we recently had a lightning strike and GreenHouse had to assist to get us up and going again. It turned out that the only item that needed replavement was the controller - and this was replaced in no time…. Yes I would say Greenhouse is “fast and knowledgeable” in this new market segment where it is difficult to choose a supplier!.
