Energy expert: Eskom not truthful about load-shedding
Energy analyst – Ted Blom spoke out his mind and said Eskom is pulling wool over South Africans’ eyes about load-shedding.
He said the power utility started implementation of Stage 6 load-shedding on Thursday as the grid yielded about 6,000 megawatts of power.
“They had declared load-shedding Stage 4 on Wednesday and Thursday night, however, when I got the statistics after the peak hour I saw that they had dumped about 5,300MW of power.”
“So that’s Stage 6, it’s up to 6,000MW, is level 6 because it is more than 5,000,” said Blom.
However, the utility has denied the allegations that it is not truthful about load-shedding.
Sikonathi Mantshantsha, Eskom spokesperson said Blom is ignorant about Eskom statistics.
“Ted Blom got this from the statistics that Eskom publishes every evening, that I personally tweet, we just put all of that in one line in addition to the 4,000MW of stage 4 load-shedding, we add this load curtailment.”
“Which let me repeat again, according to the rules Nersa provided, it is called curtailment,” said Mantshantsha.
