It has been a year since Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe launched the 49M energy-saving campaign in Johannesburg and State-owned Eskom is optimistic that South Africans are starting to heed the call to save energy – and the power utility is aiming to ensure that the initiative makes a bigger impact.
As the campaign initiator and funder, Eskom is working in partnership with business and government to get the message to 49-million South Africans to help alleviate pressure on the electricity grid by saving energy on a daily basis.
