Saving Electricity can benefit Society

In South Africa, electricity generation and supply has already reached a crisis point and results in regular loadshedding and blackouts due to deteriorating infrastructure skills shortages and corruption charges within ESKOM. This, combined with a need to move away from coal-based power generation, has forced a rethink of how South Africans consume electricity. A steeply increasing price per kWh; a gap between those with access to a reliable electricity supply and those who experience “energy poverty”; and the need to reduce the strain on an already constrained
power grid are just some of the factors behind the need for developing interventions for reducing electricity consumption by South Africans.
