Montrose was in complete darkness at 7.30 on Monday night, lit only by cars on Town Bush Road. Less load shedding was necessary countrywide yesterday, but Eskom has warned that it will continue into the future.

According to Andrew Etzinger, Eskom’s manager for energy demand, Eskom’s talks with 131 business leaders on Monday seem to have already paid dividends. He said there was no load shedding by late afternoon yesterday and demand dropped by nearly one percent.
