Load Shedding – Is There An End In Sight?

Remember the days of rolling black-outs? Of our righteous indignation when we were suddenly left without a source of power? Then, we got used to the power cuts and started planning our days around the load shedding schedules, now quietly grumbling, instead of indignant.
Through all this, our businesses, hospitals, telecommunications and schools are held hostage by the broken promises given to us by our conventional energy provider. Despite all this, South Africans have not seen the last of load shedding.

An intelligent future

Relying on an unpredictable service does not make good business-sense. Neither does existing without a source of power – warmth, food and utilities, all require energy to function.
Intelligence is using an energy source to supply constant, clean and sustainable energy. Solar panels and solar appliances are technologies which provide energy at a lower cost than traditional diesel and coal based energy sources.
Renewable energy through solar power further reduces pressure on the environment – the emissions produced by coal and diesel damage the environment, as does the waste of water needed for traditional power production.
Not only does renewable energy provide a sensible and sustainable solution to the energy crisis – it promotes and creates new economic opportunities.
Soventix solar energy operates internationally – through their excellent and practical knowledge and installation, the dream of a load shedding-free world can be realised – a world without the influence or factors which prolong the state of load shedding.

Disasters of the past

An untold number of factors have caused load shedding in South Africa – these have ranged from the logical to the bizarre. Eskom has blamed the energy crisis on everything from poor maintenance, to a lack of funds, to varying weather conditions.
For nine years, South Africans have been subjected to the instability of load shedding. Despite the over-burdened power plants, the neglected maintenance, reliance on coal and diesel to produce energy and the hot or cold weather – South Africans remain hopeful.
This hope is because a brighter, cleaner and greener energy has become easily available. The innovation of solar energy technology promises the end of load shedding.
