JOHANNESBURG – As Eskom continues to warn of rising risk of freight leakage, South Africa has been urged to invest in renewable energy sources.

Eskom carried out a one-phase load in connection with faults at several power plants on Sunday.

The company states that ten plants have less than 20 days of coal supply and five of them have less than 10 days.

Stellenbosch Sampson Mamphweli, director of Stellenbosch's Sustainable and Sustainable Energy Studies Center, says South Africans must be proactive.

"Small business owners can install solar energy products that they can get for R8 per watt, and they can even install solar thermal systems or what we usually call solar water heaters even at home."
