Eskom has funds for diesel up to March

Jan 28 2015 10:52
Johannesburg - Power utility Eskom has funds to pay for diesel to run its turbines until the end of March, averting a crisis that could have seen it lose 5% of its capacity, a government source said.

Eskom is currently battling to keep demand from overwhelming its capacity to keep the lights burning. Some of the utility's power turbines use diesel.
