Eskom microgrid plan goes dark

Eskom has gone quiet on its plan to roll out dozens of microgrids across South Africa by the end of March 2024.

Microgrids are containerised electricity generation and distribution systems for small and remote communities which are difficult or expensive to reach with conventional transmission networks.

Probably paid the contractor and hes installed them just "where" is the joke
 
The cost is being carried with a part of the $11.6 billion (R210.35 billion) in funding from developed countries
They're throwing good money down the drain. The ANC was always going to find a way to leech the majority of that into their own pockets. I doubt any of the budget allocation for the microgrids project remains. No guesses needed where the majority of money will go.

“Eskom plans to roll out about 100 microgrids across the country by the end of March 2024 as part of the Distribution business strategy,” Bala said in July 2023.
What's the holdup? A little electrile dysfunction maybe?

Using their own money to give stuff away for free is too much to swallow.
