The cost of electricity these days is ridiculous. On top of annual increases, consumers are now facing another increase driven by the Coronavirus pandemic. And this couldn’t come at a worse time since we’re headed for winter in South Africa.
Already we’re paying nearly double for the luxury of comfort — staying warm and cosy inside our homes — during the colder months. Now, we have to fork out even more! But what can we do? Reduce our electricity usage by not warming up our homes? Look for more affordable alternatives?
While it’s always a good idea to regulate your electricity usage since traditional electricity isn’t great for the environment, an even better solution is to turn to gas. Gas is much more eco-friendly than electricity, more affordable and readily available in South Africa. The best part is that load shedding won’t affect you as much when you use gas.
