The Energy Crisis in South Africa – Eskom and the Economy
The Energy Crisis

Scarcity and Load shedding has taken a toll on everyone in South Africa in recent years. Traffic lights not running, no light, darkness prevails and business fails. All South Africans have had to adjust to the loss of electricity and load shedding (where there are schedule outages throughout the country, sometimes several hours a day). How can you keep your business going when basic utilities are not available. The entire world is now feeling the energy crisis but this has been going on in South Africa for several years.

How exactly has this affected business?

Dramatically! Power outages for hours at a time, sometimes even a full day, leaves businesses in a position to either close shop or invest in a generator as an immediate solution.

The South African economy is being attacked from all sides.

What will come from this?

When humans are pushed into a corner they often come to a state of urgency and will do what is required to survive. We start innovating – using Solar Panels and moving to alternate reliable energy sources.

When these innovations take place, we can look forward to an exciting future.

How does this affect you?

In moments of scarcity, it is good to have a reserve account to keep you around for the tougher days. Take control of your finances, have funds available for a rainy day and make this BUSINESS POLICY.

Money is a source of energy and you want to make sure that you have a back-up reserve, uninterrupted power supply so that when things go down (and they will) you can keep working. If the power shortage and lockdowns have proven you have to be innovative, you have to be prepared and you have to have enough reserves to see you through. Joseph saved grain in times of plenty so that there was more than enough in times of lack. You can and must do the same if you are to survive.

Give us a call or drop an email and we can help you set this up and put in policy to detect and ultimately prevent business risks so that you can not only survive through hard times but actually come out bigger and stronger.
