Deputy President David Mabuza says government is looking at repurposing up to 7 of Eskom’s power plants, to ensure a more reliable electricity supply to the national grid.
Mabuza was answering questions in Parliament yesterday and said the bouts of loadshedding the country experiences have had a severe negative impact on the economy.
Mabuza says there is also currently a greater drive to incorporate renewable-energy sources into South Africa’s energy mix.
