100 days without load-shedding

Load-shedding has cost the economy of South Africa greatly, losing an average of R1 billion a day, and jobs having being lost due to load-shedding. The milestone of 100 days without load-shedding is course for celebration.

Business, in particular the mining sector; have been hard hit by load-shedding cutting down their production time significantly. The Minister of Electricity Mr Kgosientsho Ramokgopa says the 100 days mark a significant milestone in the country’s journey towards a more stable and reliable electricity supply.

The Minister says the achievement is as a result of the dedication and hard work and collaboration of all the stakeholders involved in the energy sector.

“I want to express my sincere appreciation to ESKOM, its competent employees, and all stakeholders for their efforts in ensuring that we maintain a consistent power supply for our nation,” said Ramokgopa.

Minister Kgosientsho Ramokgopa says the achievement of stabilising the national grid by far, not only benefits business and the economy, but also improves the quality of the lives of the citizens of South Africa.

“As we celebrate this milestone, let us remain committed to the continuous improvement of our energy infrastructure, the diversification of our energy sources and the promotion of sustainable practices.  

Together, we can build a resilient and efficient energy sector that meets the needs of our country now and in the future.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this achievement. Let us strive to maintain this positive momentum in our quest for energy sovereignty,” said Minister Ramokgopa.
