Energy saving boost for Cape Town

Cape Town households which have been experiencing power outages recently, are to be fitted with energy saving compact fluorescent light bulbs. This is an effort by the department of minerals and energy, in partnership with Eskom and bulb makers Osram, to address power failure problems and encourage conservation of energy. According to BuaNews, minerals and energy minister Lindiwe Hendricks says more than 500 million of the bulbs will be distributed in Cape Town soon. Manufacturers of the bulbs claim they use only a quarter of the electricity required by traditional bulbs and produce the same amount of required light.
