ENERGY IN OUR LIVES
Our website deals with energy sources in South Africa.
South Africa is a developing country and only about half of South Africans have access to electricity. Millions of South Africans rely on energy sources such as cow dung, paraffin, coal, petrol and wood, some of which are highly dangerous. We explore alternative energy options such as solar energy,hydro energy,energy from the wind and nuclear energy. We also look at ways that the cost of electricity can be reduced. We then look at how people can live without electricity and at the role of coal-burning power stations in South Africa.
