There’s no doubt, 2020 has been a tough year so far. With this global pandemic at the forefront of everyone’s mind, we South Africans have the added stress of load shedding during the coldest months of the year. It seems that the price per unit keeps on climbing yet the service delivery keeps declining.
To say that South Africans are feeling the impact of the current situation is an understatement. Most of us are tired of feeling powerless against those ‘in charge’ of our livelihoods. It is time to take back the power (at least when it comes to our electricity supply) and look for alternative solutions.
The truth is that you won’t have to look very far. There are only 3 options:
- Learn to live without it
- Switch to solar
- Switch to gas
Since number 1 isn’t a valid option, it leaves us with 2 and 3. Solar is an excellent option but it can be costly to install the necessary system in your home.
That leaves us with gas. Gas appliances are relatively affordable and easy to install. a Simple gas geyser installation will cut your monthly electricity bill in half. A gas geyser costs anything from R3000 to R7000, depending on its capacity.
A gas stove will enable you to cook healthy meals for your family even when the power is out. If you’re scared to use gas, don’t be. As long as you stick to the ‘rules’ and recommendations, you’ll be more than fine.
South Africa is a beautiful country. And while a lot of people wish to leave, some of us would rather stay. But, in order to live a life where load shedding doesn’t affect our daily lives, we need to think out of the box — in this case, invest in gas appliances. Not only will it make your life more comfortable, but it will also save you money.
