As power utility Eskom struggles to keep the lights on, locally developed app Eskom se Push has revealed that South Africans may be on course to have the largest amount of hours under load-shedding in six years. Times Live quotes the service’s data as indicated that 2018 had the least load-shedding, with 141 hours, while in 2019 and 2020, load-shedding occurred for 533 and 846 hours respectively. If the power utility continues to implement blackouts at the same rate as it started this year, load-shedding may occur for 1,118 hours by the end of this year, the highest since 2015 which saw 1,374 hours of load shedding.
