South Africa's cabinet to discuss self-generation of energy - Ramaphosa
JOHANNESBURG, Dec 11 (Reuters) - South Africa's President
Cyril Ramaphosa said on Wednesday the cabinet will discuss
self-generation of energy on Friday, after power utility Eskom
this week implemented severe power cuts that dealt a further
blow to an ailing economy.
"Right now a clear proposal has been put on the table, and
there are a number of applications from the private sector which
has been saying it wants to self-generate," Ramaphosa told
"In the end what they don't use they will be able to put or
sell into the grid. ...So that is a matter that is now going to
be discussed at the cabinet on Friday."
