Eskom's worst case for load-shedding over the next year — 326 days of power cuts

Eskom has provided a dismal outlook for its anticipated power system performance in the coming 12 months, with its worst-case scenario requiring 326 days of load-shedding.

The power utility delivered the forecast during a recent presentation to Parliament's Joint Portfolio Committee on Public Enterprises and Mineral Resources.

Unless they get their tariff increases, I bet.
Disgusting blackmailing tactics.
 
  • February 2023 — 3,514MW
  • August 2023 — 2,861MW
  • February 2024 — 1,474MW
  • August 2024 — 7,389MW
  • February 2025 and after — 8,011MW
Where we getting this MW from? Thin Air?
Nameplate capacity * capacity factor maybe? Bid window 3.5 should come online for quite a few projects (e.g. Redstone CSP 100MW is set to be Q4 2023).
 
What alternative energy stock options should we be considering at this point? Ellies clearly was a donkey in the horse race, which others are worthy of investing in?
 
At this point I feel there is no limit to the amount of failure that will come out of Eskom. They will spit in the eye of calendars and what we know about the Earth's orbit and rotation and find a way to perform 400+ days of loadshedding in a year.
 
When we moved into our place (CT), 3 years ago...
R500 was getting us just over 300 units.
This morning, R500 only got us 160 units.
Someone is making loads of cash.
 
Relatives that emigrated just arrived in Australia and the first comment was "no more load shedding unless you don’t pay the bills" :cautious:
Are they aware Australia got load shedding warnings in June this year?
