The Future of Solar Powered Homes?

Elon Musk has finally revealed the big project he’s been working on, and the retailer (SolarCity) is marketing it as the “Roof with Invisible Power”. We knew the reveal would contain a solar roof design and a new battery system. What we didn’t know was how the whole setup would function, given the challenges of …

Is South Africa in Survival Mode?

The American Disaster Preparedness center came up with one of the most interesting campaigns for motivating people to stay prepared. Instead of telling everyone to be scared of hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes, they focused on zombies. That’s right, zombies. Thanks to popular television shows like The Walking Dead, Americans are warming up to the idea …

Is Load Shedding really a thing of the Past?

For the last year the face of Eskom has been Brian Molefe. As the latest CEO to take the position at the head of a fairly unstable board, he has “saved” South Africans from load shedding – temporarily. He has also been generously awarded for his efforts with an almost R800 000 a month salary …

Now it’s just a matter of making …

Eskom Sabotaging Renewable Energy Projects?

As a tax-paying citizen you automatically feel as if you should be receiving the best from your government. This makes sense…does it not? But let’s be honest with ourselves for a moment – what government doesn’t hide some kind of corruption? In South Africa we have Eskom, the dictating factor of energy availability. To make …

This is Eskom’s Worst Nightmare

There is something to be said about having a singular power entity in South Africa. For starters, it doesn’t have to pay attention to the increasing rates, because it doesn’t have any competition. While countries like America, UK and Australia have several companies who compete with each other, Eskom only has to compete with itself. …
