I remember when it all started in the early 2000's we went well past stage 4

There was stage 3a and stage 3b
Stage 4 a and stage 4 b
Stage 5 a and stage 5 b
Same with stage 6

Ain't seen nothing yet.

So how many KwH do you need to power a normal house, with fridge, geyser and stove?

Friend of mine is working at the new Merc plant there. I'm sure as hell they can afford a shut down now. They only started running about 3 weeks ago :D

Chatting to him now. Said they have generators so doesn't phase them. I was just thinking of the overheads of running generators.

Are they not getting loadshedded? I will be pissed!
