City of Joburg’s Plan to Reduce Load Shedding

“At R20 million, we can recommission the two existing open-cycle gas turbine stations,” Phalatse said.
“This would, of course, require the city to procure and burn diesel. We are already sitting with 1.2 million litres of diesel for these sites.”
The mayor said the open-cycle gas turbine stations would add 74MW to the network when needed.
