South Africans urged to reduce energy consumption


Posted: 03 May 2018


The month of May has been declared National Energy Month in South Africa and South Africans are urged to come on board and reduce energy consumption in their everyday life. Eskom has embarked on a massive capacity expansion programme to meet South Africa's increasing energy needs. The energy provider expects to double its capacity to 80 000 MW by 2026. In December 2010, the UN General Assembly declared 2012 the International Year of Sustainable Energy Access for All. Government has thus emphasised the importance of increasing access to energy, energy efficiency and renewable energy.

Electricity saving tips

  • Take a shower instead of a bath.
  • Don’t fill the kettle - only boil the water that you need.
  • Keep the fridge door closed, and make sure it is properly sealed.
  • Don’t  cook with a small pot on a large stove plate.
  • Dress for the season - warm in winter and light clothing in summer.
  • Switch off all appliances when they are not in use.
  • Reduce your heater or geyser temperature from hot to warm.
  • Close all windows and doors when the air conditioner or heater is on.
  • Use CFL energy saving bulbs at all times.
  • Fit one light bulb with the correct level of brightness in a room.
  • Turn the lights off when you leave a room.
  • Do all ironing at the same time.
