As Power Reserves In South Africa Remain Low – Eskom 2014

(Duncan Alfreds, News24)Johannesburg – Eskom’s electricity supply system remains under strain but the utility is not expecting further power cuts, it said on Saturday.

“The system is tight at the moment because our reserves are low. We don’t, however, expect load shedding,” spokesperson Andrew Etzinger said.

“At the moment we are replenishing our fuel supply to power stations. We are refilling the plants’ fuel.”

Etzinger said consumers would be informed on all developments regarding the supply of electricity.

The parastatal’s CEO Brian Dames said on Friday that opting for staggered power cuts was a painful move, but unavoidable to save the electricity system.

“The decision was necessary to avoid a total blackout,” he told reporters in Johannesburg.

He said a total blackout would have had significant consequences for the South African economy.

At 06:00 on Thursday, Eskom announced a power emergency caused by heavy rains, which wet its coal stocks.

Large industrial customers were asked to reduce consumption by 10% and the public were asked to conserve electricity to help ease demand on the power grid.

In Tshwane, power was cut for about two hours on Thursday in some areas. Power cuts were also experienced in Johannesburg.

The City of Cape Town initiated “stage three” power cuts and suburbs in Port Elizabeth were also affected.

Eskom urged the public to continue to use electricity sparingly although the emergency was over.

How do plasma TVs work?  Q&A ask Head Squeeze – WET TV

So how do plasma TV’s work? Believe it or not the concept of plasma displays had been invented as long ago as the 1930’s, Not quite 21st cutting edge technology! The idea is that instead of using electrons to create lines, the plasma screen uses three fluorescent light cells, one in each primary colour.

Be Inspired By Rhon Every Saturday Morning

Rhon 2014


You can find Joy in the midst of brokenness. One of the hardest times to be joyful is when you’re dealing with multiple problems-seeking solutions but finding none-and then several new difficulties beset you. If you focus too much on finding solutions, you will sink under the weight of your problems. So it’s vital to remember that I am present with you in adversity. I am at work in your situation, and My matchless wisdom enables Me to bring good out of evil-ultimately outsmarting evil with good!

The way to find Joy in adversity is to encounter Me. You can pray, Jesus, help me find You in the midst of this mess! As you unplug your emotions from all the problems and plug them into My Presence, good things start to happen. Your dark mood grows steadily lighter and brighter. Also, as you remain in Me-plugged in to My Presence-I enable you to see things from My perspective. You can be joyful in the midst of brokenness by staying connected to Me.

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. -James 1:2-3 nkjv

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! -Romans 11:33
