|What happened to load shedding
As 2016 rapidly approaches, South Africans are left wondering whether the ugly beast, known as load shedding, will peep its head back up and ruin everyone’s fun. The load shedding schedule has looked promising recently, with only a small number of areas being affected over the past few months. Eskom CEO told parliament that the utility is expected to remain strong until at least April 2016, when winter returns.
As many businesses take a break during the holiday season, electricity demands are less strenuous. Eskom plans to capitalise on this, stepping up their maintenance on their ageing fleet of power stations during this time.
This Eskom news means that we are on track for a summer free of load shedding, but it seems ambitious to expect no load shedding at all during the course of 2016. As the energy crisis persists, more and more people are turning to solar power as a way of beating the inevitable rolling blackouts.
Thanks to load shedding woes and an ongoing push towards greater solar efficiency, both household rooftop solar installations and commercial large scale solar projects have become financially viable. Photovoltaic (PV) systems should not be seen as a short-term energy solution, but rather a long-term investment with many added advantages.
