Government has thanked South Africans for saving electricity in winter when the demand was at its highest.
Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba however appealed for the redoubling of efforts to increase energy efficiency at all levels.
The Minister and Eskom’s chief executive, Brian Dames, addressed the media in Cape Town on the state of electricity in the country.
Gigaba warned that while the load shedding of 2008 had been averted, it was no secret that the country’s electricity supply and demand was delicately balanced.
