    Re: Eskom buying batteries worth R14 billion

    The problem is South Africa is water scarce and dams horribly environmentally damaging, and need maintenance. Pumped storage is a really good option, cureently in use, I don't know why they don't use...

    Re: Eskom buying batteries worth R14 billion

    They could if they use renewables to charge the batteries and add the stable battery output to the grid. It's way beyond my pay grade but it seems to me it's a way of adding capacity and taking out...

  5. Re: 2007 Fortuner d4d 4x4 buying advice please

  6. Re: 2007 Fortuner d4d 4x4 buying advice please

    Re: Why We Drive Nissan

    Had two in my life, back when they were still Datsun. A 120Y and a 1400 Panel van that went for ever and everywhere. Sold it for what I paid for it R1,500, after 10 years and 400,000km. My car with...

    I'm not sure the forum can withstand this much brand violence in one week. Some are going to be so joyfully involved they might need physiotherapy by Monday.

    Perhaps the only rider to that is Eskom's performance. If they can't add capacity faster than the galloping obsolescence of some of the older Eskom plants then load shedding is going to be a daily...

    What don't I understand about this graphic then? If I'm putting it into the grid between 06:00 and 16:00, taking it out between 22:00 and 06:00, then surely there's a peak margin. Or is the red and...

    But this is a different proposal if true, they're saying you will pay more in off peak if you don't use power in peak demand times. It's a bizarre notion, goes counter to every single idea of right...
