NamPower in panic mode

NamPower feels heat as Eskom threatens load shedding

Power utility NamPower appeared to be in panic mode this week after South Africa’s Eskom declared an emergency due to a severe reduction in energy supply caused by a generator problem in Mpumalanga and the summer maintenance schedules.
On Wednesday, Eskom, one of Namibia’s biggest power benefactors announced that its system is facing severe constraints. Eskom warned its large industrial customers to reduce demand by 10% while individual consumers were asked to switch off non-essential appliances.
