The timeline of 10 years for South Africa to be free of load shedding, is mostly due to the failure of the State to secure its energy resources. This assessment from the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research’s Monique Le Roux comes as the country is enduring Stage 6 load shedding. She contends that even green energy can only be used as a support, and not a solution to the country’s energy woes. Le Roux notes that Eskom’s infrastructure is not only failing due to being old, or under par; it’s also due to the utility using sub-standard coal. This causes weaker outputs and places further strain on the generating units.
