Unreliable power supply due to excessive load shedding has most South Africans worried about the future. However, every consumer can make a difference by using technology.
For example, automation can make the job of managing and saving energy less expensive and arduous. Similarly, making use of the internet of things (IoT), machine learning and managed services can also have a positive impact on any business’s energy usage.
