PHILANTHROPIST and businesswoman Thobile Nyawo is offering a solution that ordinary citizens can adopt to deal with load shedding.

Ordinary citizens, businesses, and civil society organisations have been bearing the impact of load shedding for too long.

The regular power cuts have disrupted daily life, affected economic growth, and impacted the livelihoods of millions of people.

The situation has become so dire that many people have lost faith in the government and the energy sector.

Thobile believes that ordinary people should not have to rely solely on politicians to resolve this issue. Instead, they can take matters into their own hands and explore alternative solutions. 

She has been actively working on renewable energy solutions that can help South Africans mitigate the impact of load shedding and create a more sustainable future.

Thobile's approach is focusing on providing affordable, accessible, and reliable renewable energy solutions to individuals, businesses, and organisations through her company Isambane Energy. 

Her solutions range from solar-powered generators and battery systems to energy-efficient appliances and lighting.

She is also working on community-based projects that can help to promote renewable energy and create local jobs.

“At Isambane Energy, we believe that everyone should have access to reliable, affordable, and sustainable energy solutions. We are committed to creating a future where energy is not a luxury, but a basic human right,” she said.

“By harnessing the power of renewable energy, we can create a world that is more equitable, more resilient, and more sustainable.”

Thobile's innovative approach to energy is not only providing much-needed relief to South Africans but is also promoting a more sustainable and equitable energy system.
