Well, not surprising, it's been months since we had LS, so not totally unexpected.

Not sure what's worse. No heat in winter or no fans to relieve heat in summer!

having a lot of fun there, and why SA has a long way to even think about the possibility, we will have EV's driving around.

why should I buy or wear headphones because of someone elses actions? how is a baby for example meant to wear noise cancelling headphones?

fair point, people are inconsiderate, but what else are you supposed to do? smash their Generator to bits with a sledgehammer?

That's a bit more then 30% considering that the EAP hasn't been above 62% for months.

Its closer to 35% of the "overall" capacity of Eskom... depending on what is actually offline, it could be ever closer to 50% of the coal fleet.

Invest in a more viable solution xD why do you need to run your 7.5kVa generator until 1am? I know for a fact they dont work from home or anything like that, they get home at a very reasonable time, can do dinner, baths tv relaxation time etc etc comfortably and not annoy everyone else until all hours. The power will even come back on, and it will be like 2 hours before they turn the genny off, as if they dont want to interrupt their movie, games etc
