Load-shedding now a national disgrace
17 January 2008, 12:12 GMT + 2

THE current round of Eskom-related load-shedding is no longer an annoyance.

It has become a major distressing factor in the lives of millions of South Africans who are finding themselves more and more frequently without electricity.

It is not uncommon, in the Johannesburg area, for suburbs to be without power for many hours each day.


Business Unity of South Africa (Busa) said on Thursday that the power cuts had cost businesses — particularly small-to-medium enterprises — "millions of rands with no end in sight".


To combat on-going Power Failures we suggest an alternative power source to bridge the gaps and minimise your losses.

Computers and power-sensitive equipment require what is referred to as “clean power.” Clean power is electrical current that is consistent and has a stable “sine wave” or signal. If the lights or other basic appliances in your home were being powered by a generator and there was a fluctuation in the AC power, you’d probably see the lights dim and then return to full brightness—no problem! However, if your computer was being powered by a generator and the voltage fluctuated, chances are the computer would either shut down or at least interrupt the program you were working in or even damage the equipment.
