South Africa’s power utility Eskom, is investigating a fire that broke out on Saturday morning at its Kendal Power Station in Mpumalanga. Eskom says no injuries were reported after the unfortunate incident. The fire has cost Eskom approximately 2000 megawatts of power.
South Africa has been using coal to produce electricity for years, but it has proven to be unsustainable along with the many setbacks faced by Eskom. Now, more sustainable forms of energy are being considered.
