Businesses face bleak future as loadshedding worsens
thesouthafrican.com estimated that the loss to businesses that battle with scheduled power cuts stands at about R1 billion per stage, per day. These power cuts can be up to 8 hrs a day, and businesses have been warned to expect it for another 2-3 years.
When these power cuts hit, businesses get plunged into lack of internet connections, which is crucial to the operations of many operations as it prevents them from accessing their networks and halts their communications, e-banking and other digital services. Consequently, they risk losing valuable data, damaging equipment, and experiencing costly downtime which can lead to a significant loss of revenue, and in some cases, it can even result in reputational damage, especially if client information or confidential data is lost or compromised.
