Not nearly enough is being done to harness our natural resources to ultimately satisfy our energy needs and significantly reduce our dependence on dirty, costly and dangerous gas, coal and even nuclear energy.
Not nearly enough is being done to encourage, even commission R&D, that finds ways to provide for the installation of wind / solar in new social housing developments, new buildings, retro – fitting old buildings etc.
Research, development and implementation of clean, green, safe and abundant green energy that powers our neighborhoods and business zones is not main streamed enough.
The local / municipal, provincial government and the National departmental budgets reflect this reality.
Not even the drastic impact load shedding is having on our economy is changing the budget priorities of any of the three spheres of government.
