Africa: Power during Eskom Load shedding, Join me now

Sorry, I am tired of excuses. No power means I can not work. No power means my company does not perform. Eskom will not pay my workers at the end of the month. I have taken action!

The dreaded click at 10: 30 yesterday was repeated at 8:00 today. They do not stick to the promise of 2 hours power failures. During the night I had 4 power failures. Yesterday I had FOUR HOURS of load shedding with no power!

I am not going to try and reason with them. I am not trying to show them how to run things smoother.

Instead we installed an inverter in the trusty Izuzu Kb280.

* I am writing this article, running 2 computers,
a television, my adsl network
and the scanner/printer/fax. I have dstv running. I could even add a lamp but that is not needed. Oh yes and the hi-fi is also plugged in. *

/*The Izuzu is not even idling! */
Impressed? I am! If you want the solution to the problem and are not able to run a generator or want to deal with the noise of it..contact me:

*have a lovely day!

Hi there

We had the inverter installed in the Izuzu, attach is a picture..
Cost, including installation was R3900 and I am so happy I went for it..

We tested it, running 2 pc's a network modem, dstv, television, fan,lamp and radio, as well as a scanner/fax, modem all at the same time. In a 4 hour power failure, I could continue working, just starting the Izuzu every 30 minutes, letting it run for 3 minutes , to ensure that the battery did not drain.

Powers 220-240v AC mains equipment directly from a 12v source. Connect directly to a 12v battery to convert the voltage to mains AC power.

The Powergroup has been called into life to invite as many as possible people, companies, entities to join hands to bring a united action against Eskom / Government. An action of this multitude will have similarities to the United States version of a class action, but will be based on a dilict and not the enforcement of an infringement of a right in the Bill of Rights. Although indirectly some of our rights in the Bill of Rights has been infringed due to power shedding this will not be the basis to bring the action against Eskom / Government, but the infringements could form part of the particulars of claim

It is now time to act. www.powergroup.org.za
The executive management of Eskom performed to such an extent over the past three years that long term performance bonuses of R10,3 million will be paid to them on 31 March 2008. The question is; how is it possible that South Africa is sitting without electricity while the government owned company that is responsible for power generation will pay out “performance” bonuses. The answer lies in the nature and the performance measurement criteria of these bonuses.

To read more visit www.powergroup.org.za under heading ESKOM MANAGEMENT TO RECEIVE “PERFORMANCE”
BONUSSES

It is now time to stop payout of the bonuses. Voice your concern. Visit www.mypetition.co.za.

Power Shedding


Power Shedding is back, at least in Gauteng. I’m not sure what is happening in the rest of the country but I presume it happening everywhere. I’ve listened to the traffic reports this morning, spoke to some people and received a lot of report of inconvenience and disruptions.

We called the Powergroup into life during January this year in the mist of Load Shedding. Shortly thereafter Load Shedding stopped and everybody was happy again. This weeks Load Shedding according to Eskom is due to ‘n sudden demand of Electricity due to the cold weather. This of course is just ‘n forerunner in the small for the winter on hands. What’s happening now will just repeat on a much bigger scale in the winter to come. In the mean time at least 4 of Eskom generators are out of commission. This just reflects back to the reports brought out by www.forensies.com which indicated a lack of planning and maintenance on the whole Electricity grit.

In the mean time Eskom shifts the blame to the consumer. They show their teeth and indicate if we do not use less power we will feel their grunt. I agree, we must use less electricity to get through this crisis, but we must also demand heads to roll of people who are the authors of this crisis and replace them with competent people who does not only do the talk, but also do the walk. If one’s look at Eskom’s financial statements it is clear on their own account that they are the only authors of the electricity crisis.

Million of people had billions of damages due to mismanagement of Eskom and it is time to claim back that was taken away en pressurize Eskom and Government to implement a plan of action and not just talk about it.

I spoke to a lot op people who indicated that what will it help to take on a giant like Eskom. There is a duty on everyone of us to act now. If we do not act we will give Eskom and the Government the green light to proceed with mismanagement. Just look at our roads, look at our municipalities, look at the state of our rivers, and look at the state of service in government organizations. Government organizations are kept alive by business that is forced to do the work of Government officials if business wants to keep the economy alive. I see at the Masters Office, Magistrate Courts, and Municipality Offices. How long will we tolerate this?

I’ve been criticized that I am using emotions and religion to make profit out of an unfortunate crisis in the country. I’ve been criticized that I am busy with touting. I believe that God uses people to bring change about. This means that God will use people to turn our country back to the country it is supposed to be. I am willing to stand up and make a difference. Are you?

If everyone runs away from the problems in our beautiful South Africa with all of its opportunities, I will stil be here because I believe in this country. I know what God has in store for this Country and I know that I’ve got a purpose in this country, do you?

I the mean time Eskom bosses cant wait for the 31 of March 2008 due in 13 days when they will receive an huge bonus of more than R10 Million for allowing this Electricity crises and all we can do is complain, criticize en point fingers but doing nothing, I repeat nothing at all. When will we wake up? When will we put our money where our mouth is?

Powergroup is waiting in anticipation for South Africans and anybody who wants to make a difference in this beautiful country. Powergroup with their experts www.forensies.com are already in the position to prove in court that Eskom was negligent in managing electricity in South Africa. According to their own financial statements there is more than enough money available to build more power stations and to pay out damages to people who have been hit hard by this crisis. This has been so for the last 10 years. If we do not act, where will we be in 10 years?

If we unite and stand together we will be the Giant who can force Eskom and Government to act now and we can be through this crisis before we know it. Thereafter we as citizens wil be able to force municipalities and governmental institutions to perform the duties and restore our country to the state it is supposed to be.
