I'm curious. Nothing political. When did construction at Majuba power station start? Last unit was commissioned in the 90s.The point is that previously this country could build power stations regularly in time. Since 'freedom' that capacity seems to have evaporated. Can you fault this point?
Lies or differences in how facts are interpenetrated and presented.Was it too hard for them to make the point without resorting to lies?
I do thee hear.You can't have it all or nothing. Well you can have nothing( or all of it depending on your point of view), but if you are Libertarian or Ancap their is a long way to go -> anyone better than the current government. Before we get anything more reasonable.
Majuba was started way before, so I don't think you can count it.Try not to post quotes which can't be backed up. By my count Kusile has brought 3 units online.
On the second image, which station is that was built between 1991 and 2021? I can see an argument to include both Majuba and Medupi.
So, would you rather prefer?:You could say 0 coal-fired power stations, as I said, there are arguments to say that 0, 1 or 2 coal-fired stations were built between 1991 and 2021.
The image shows coal-fired power stations, but I refers to power stations. In that case, why not count the Sere wind farm?
While I don't like to include pumped storage as a 'power station' other sources do include them, so maybe Ingula should be on the list too.
I'm pointing out problems with the image which you posted.
I remember days when we used to start from home early morning, build the power plant and come back only when it is done. No one was allowed to go home till it is finished.
Exactly the problem. You need a usage projection, planning etc ... the result takes over a decade to start producing. It's not a case of throwing a tender and some money out there once there's a problem - then you're at least a decade and a half too late.I remember days when we used to start from home early morning, build the power plant and come back only when it is done.
