Eskom is being replaced – leading to potential death spiral

But you just said there is a Miracle at Eskom.

Are we kissing that goodbye now?
Was literally thinking the same thing.
MyBB lost consistency and the plot with their articles and just became a clickbait hack that's got nothing to do with broadband.

I have a softspot for MyBB (read MyADSL) but let's be honest, it's the forum + community keeping it alive, not really the news.

Mybroadband can do as they please. Its a business to make money. What is sad is how they used and us using the Forum as a dump for their various duplicate articels because their comment system (DISQUS and before) failed.

Because we still discuss the headlines or issues but it is now spread over various threads and they refuse to merge it. It is exactly the opposite of how a forum functions or used to function. But they dont give a hell, so whatever.

Nee man. Wie het vir my rooibos tee gegee.
 
This has led some, including former Eskom CEO Matšhela Koko, to say that the utility is in a death spiral as many of its best-paying customers turn to alternative energy solutions.
Please don't give this crook any exposure! Broken clock tendencies here.
 
Obvious enough. Though at least, if the big industrial clients go, then the heavy cross-subsidization, that residential customers currently cough up for (the biggest industrial clients do not pay as much per unit as residential users), then Eskom should start earning more per unit sold, on average. Even if the residential unit prices do not change.

Whether any benefit from that will ever actually be passed on to residential users... That remains to be seen. I doubt it.
 
Correction: "many of its best-paying customers were FORCED to alternative energy solutions". Well, Eskom can promote EVs and maybe drive up demand a bit too. The point is we are not stuck in the 1950's and a lot of things have changed, except that basic scheduled maintenance, efficiency and planned growth should always be a critical part of any business, private or public sector. Droughts like Cape Town had also drove down demand for water. But given also our still booming population growth, that does still also bolster up demand.
