The “Please Use Only What You Need” campaign aims to create awareness, educate, and encourage participation among the residential and business sectors to use only the electricity that they really need, and in so doing assist to relieve pressure on the national electricity network.
The overarching campaign message is “Please use only what you need” and “Together, we can make a difference” and another objective is to avoid or reduce load shedding as far as possible. Eskom will share the relevant electricity savings behavioural tips as well as information on efficient technologies and appliances with customers to empower them to effectively manage their own consumption.
Eskom recognises that this campaign needs to be inclusive as it cannot do this alone. The support from the South African residential and business sectors is crucial to relieving pressure on the power grid and making this campaign a success.
