So much for Nuclear power...

Another day at work without power. We sat for 5 hours without power today. That is another whole working day gone. The government yesterday throwing accusations of sabotage around, but Koeberg Nuclear Power station and the power company Eskom says they don't know anything about this. Today the government says that they said nothing about sabotage. There has been rumors about Muslim fundamentalist groups that took responsibility for the sabotage.
There are rumors that we will still have these power problems between 6 weeks and 9 months. This is totally unacceptable. What can a person or a company do for alternative power sources?
Here are some links regarding the powerfailures:
Koeberg sabotage claim queried
Daily power cut shock for EC
Eskom plans to return Koeberg to full power
or you can just
Search Google News

I have added a picture from 2 days ago, we had some rain and after it cleared and just before the sun set...
