Is solar energy the future for South Africa?

A few years ago, we thought that not having electricity in our homes for some parts of the day would become a regular occurrence as then Eskom CEO Tshediso Matona said load shedding was “here to stay”.  This year we realise it is a long term problem for South Africa.  Electricity is becoming more and more expensive and as Eskom struggles to keep the lights on it is not something that is going to change soon.

Load shedding is no coincidence. Eskom has stated it is “entitled to a 90% increase” and has now applied to increase your electricity costs for 2019. The National Energy Regulator, NERSA has asked for your comment in the increase decision-making processRead article here

In South Africa we do not have a shortage of sunshine, which is why solar energy is such a sustainable alternative to what Eskom provides.
