Did You Know?

The traditional method of distributing Energy – through steel and copper infrastructure - is entering a transformation phase from which few electricity distributors can escape. This change of traditionally distributing bulk electricity generated and delivered to Ekurhuleni by Eskom is driven by the concept of renewable energy sources, mainly wind and energy generated by landfill gas and a process named waste to energy, where waste is burnt to generate energy.
