    • Another interesting, and thought-provoking article on solar. Leads me to think that Eskom is wildly over-estimating demand for expensive electricity, and that it’s plans for more and more coal-fired and nuclear power stations are insane at a Dr Stranglove level.

      • Thanks Peter for sharing this link. It is a well laid out article that explains the complexities around the importance of maintaining a healthy grid whilst advancing our technologies to support renewables. As prices come down, demand will naturally increase. There will also be increased pressure on our authorities to implement tariffs for feeding excess electricity into the grid. If Cape Town and most of the first world can get it right there are enough models for us to draw on. There should be no more excuses!
