Eskom has now applied for yet another electricity tariff increase of 16%. They claim that we had it too easy when it comes to the cost of electricity during the past two decades, and that these tariff hikes are simply to balance out the cost of supply. Whether you believe them or not you can be sure about one thing, you will pay a lot more for electricity in the next few years. Maybe it’s time you consider the alternatives when it comes to electricity use, and this is a great example. While it will not replace your stove or oven, this solar cooker is a great way of saving electricity on those hot sunny days, and if you win it in one of Popular Mechanics’ latest competitions, won’t cost you a cent.
