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.

South Africans are in for a hefty rise in the price of electricity, as the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa) has agreed to Eskom increasing its tariff by over 15% for the 2021/22 financial year.

The agreement between Nersa and Eskom came after the power utility won a case in the Pretoria High Court in October 2020, which allowed it to push for a higher tariff increase than what Nersa was willing to allow. Read 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.
