If South Africans start using less electricity, demand on the national grid would be markedly decreased, which could help stave off load-shedding.
This, according to the National Energy Development Institute, which says that if residents start using electricity “smarter” they too can benefit, by reducing their monthly electricity bills.
General Manager: Corporate Communications at SANEDI, Barry Bredenkamp gives consumers some electricity-savings tips.
He says a collective approach is needed to reduce the country’s overall energy-bill.
SA’s national energy supply continues to be under strain, compounded by the use of power-hungry solutions such as HVAC in summer months. Cool roofs allow less heat into the building, making homes, warehouses and other buildings without air-conditioners much cooler.(1/2) pic.twitter.com/RJb6CtGBEt
