Eskom Will Add 13,000MW to Its Grid. Kgosientsho Ramokgopa, South Africa’s electricity minister, said the country will prioritize expanding the grid over the next decade as part of its effort to end daily power cuts.
He said on Sunday that about 25 projects are being worked on in existing substations, which could release about 13,000MW of energy.

He said he believed it was possible for us to add 24 gigawatts in the next 10 years.
Power problems in South Africa will not be solved until far in the future, however. Eskom, the state-owned utility, announced stage 4 load-shedding starting at 2 p.m. on Sunday until 5 a.m. on Monday morning.
Across Africa’s most industrialized nation, 16.943MW of generating capacity has been lost to power outages, the power company said in a statement. According to Ramokgopa, the grid remains vulnerable and susceptible to falling megawatt availability.
