It is no secret that the intensified load shedding has had a devastating economic effect
on many companies. Without electricity, many businesses cannot function, and in those
instances, employees are unable to work.
But what about the impact load shedding has on entrepreneurs and smaller business in
Cape Town? What is the economic impact of load-shedding in our local communities?
If you’re a business owner in CPT, how has no electricity for 2-4 hours at a time impact
YOU and your pocket? How are you keeping your head above water? How has this
inconvenience spoiled your December?
If YOU have been negatively impacted by load-shedding or know of a business who is
now struggling to keep afloat as a direct result of Eskom’s mismanagement – we want
to hear your story.
