Why Energy Reduction is Critical in South Africa

• 92.6% Of South Africa’s Electricity is produced by enviro‍‍‍nmentally unfriendly coal-fired power plants.

• 26% of the 2016 developing infrastructure budget was spent on electricity generation (R284billion*  
 ‍‍‍26%).

• 40.9% of Electricity in SA is consumed by Industrial customers – 98.16 Billion kWh.

• If 10% of Industrial users save 10% on consumption then 0.9816 Billion kWh or Nine Hundred and
eighty one million, six hundred thousand kWh would be saved.

This saving in electricity is enough to power 195 000 residential homes for one year (assuming average ‍‍‍annual household consumption is 5000kWh).
