Repair Your World: Afrikaans Newspaper

Dear all

For those Afrikaans readers amongst you, an article referring to me appears in yesterday's Rapport newspaper in the Sake24 section.  I was interviewed by the reporter on Friday.

You can read the article in Afrikaans and English.

I also just sent the following to the editor of the Cape Times (it was published - although rewritten):

Acting deputy director-general of energy Ompie Aphane said last week that the latest tariff announcement will see the shortfall on Eskom's build programme increase from R34billion to R50billion (at http://www.energyforecastonline.co.za/index.php/articles/water-and-energy/140-electricy-uncertainty).

Imagine if private industry and private households built this R50 billion for themselves using Net Metering and Retail Wheeling (transporting energy across the distribution network from a point of supply to a point of use).  South Africans are ready.  Is the government ready to take a giant leap for its citizens?

Best regards
David
