Johannesburg – Failing municipal infrastructure is one of the obstacles to Eskom’s distribution network, according to the state enterprise.
Speaking at the state of the system briefing at Megwatt Park in Sunninghill, on Tuesday, interim CEO Matshela Koko explained that power generation was no longer a problem. However, distribution is a new challenge for the power utility.
“I do not sleep at night because of what I see, feel and experience within the 54% of distribution customers who are not supplied by the Eskom network,” said Koko. Eskom’s distribution accounts for 46% of the South African customer base, the rest falls on metros and municipalities.
