How to Stop Losing Money Because of Load Shedding

By January 18, 2021January 27th, 2021No Comments

Load shedding is not doing our economy any favours. According to a recent survey done by Yoco, many small business owners revealed that they lose up to 20% revenue during load shedding. South Africa’s economy takes a knock of about 1 billion per load shedding hour. Take a moment and let that sink in. 

Many people are asking the question, “How can we fix it?” But, the thing is, we can’t. At least not fast enough for your business to keep its doors open in 2021. That said, the situation is not completely hopeless — you can switch to solar. 

Switching to Solar Will save Your Business in 2021 

Switching from conventional electricity to solar has many benefits. For one, it’s much more reliable than our current (and only) service provider. Number two, solar power isn’t bad for the environment like coal-fired electricity. And most importantly, you’ll save money for many years to come. 

Solar solutions are much more attainable to business owners than the domestic market. The amount of money you lose because of load shedding justifies the initial investment. And you’ll see a return on investment much quicker too. 

No one knows what the future holds, but one thing is for sure, load shedding isn’t going anywhere any time soon. Are you willing to risk losing your business because of it? We thought as much. At NuPower, we are offering solar solutions to the South African market at affordable prices.
