Eskom asks businesses to help ease load shedding
Eskom has asked managers in shopping mall stores and office blocks to save energy where they can.
South Africa has been experiencing load shedding because of the pressure on Eskom to provide electricity.
Load shedding is a process where an area is denied access to electricity so that another area can have power.
Yesterday (Thursday), Eskom asked businesses to turn off all lights and machinary (like printers and computers) after work was finished. This would help to supply homes with power in the evening and could lead to load shedding in residential areas being stopped.
Eskom provides electricity to the entire country. At the moment, the organisation is finding it difficult to provide power because some of the equipment they use is old and in need of fixing and maintainance.
If you could find a solution to the load shedding problem in South Africa, what would do?
