6. Were the two executives recently suspended given golden handshakes?

“No” – Simpson
Liars!!!!

8. Why can’t Eskom warn households of looming power cuts the way they do big users?

“A factory had a dedicated power supply. However there were about 80 to 100 domestic users to one transformer, so it could not be done” – Hughes
It can be done, as I demonstrated to you arseholes in 2008. But noooo I am not black so you weren't interested!

9. Who controls load shedding?

“There is a ‘national control’ within Eskom that keeps an eye on supply and demand and makes this decision” – Hughes.
City power has its own powers to do loadshedding, as per my case in point when I caught them red-handed doing it at the Wilgeheuwel substation in Little Falls.

Your 10 questions on Eskom answered

Delegates at a civil society-organised conference on the country’s electricity crisis on Wednesday bombarded three Eskom representatives with questions.
“[There will be] no planned load shedding this winter,” he said, according to an Eskom tweet.
Awesome, that is great news. I never knew that you planned loadshedding in the first place, I thought you implemented it when the need arises... :rolleyes:

They did "plan" load shedding, in order to conduct the "essential" maintenance. That, according to them, has now been completed, in time for winter. So no additional "planned" load shedding as far as we all know.

Any further load shedding, will be "unplanned," in that generators can (and will) still trip for whatever reason, coal will apparently "get wet" again, and there are rumours of coal shortages as well...

It's definitely not the end of load shedding, and I recon at least for the next 5+ years, it will be here to stay. Then I'm not even going to start on the cost of electricity...
