ESKOM, the South African electricity provider, is known for its load shedding. Since 1994 when the ANC took over the reigns in South Africa there was hardly any maintenance, replacements of generators, etc. and certainly no vision; just politics and ‘looting’. On local level ESKOM engineers could not even straighten our the poles, etc. Since a few years there is a new management at ESKOM trying to repossess what was stolen and working on updating the present infrastructure including the introduction of alternative energy sources such as wind and solar (instead of coal).

Will Eskom it ever get straight?
… the national electricity supplier of South Africa going through some turbulent times. Will they ever get it straight?
Yesterday … a sun breakthrough between 2 thunderstorms; the first one damaging the 11 kVa transformer of our internet service provider. It took 36 hours for Eskom to replace it….
Let’s just say that SKEW is the title for this Land Art project of ESKOM; the national electricity provider in South Africa.
