Here is something I've been chewing over in all this load shedding lark - How much are we really saving this way?
- Every rechargeable battery that is being run down during a load shedding has to be recharged.
- Every geyser that cools down during a load shedding has to come back up to temperature.
- Every refrigeration system that has warmed up during load shedding has to be cooled back down.
When they power a section of the grid back up, demand on that sector is probably higher than normal after load shedding.
I wonder by how much?
