Seasonally adjusted electricity consumption increased by 1.4 percent for the three months ended January 2012 compared with the previous three months.

According to Statistics South Africa (Stats SA), in January, a month-on-month increase of 0.3 percent was recorded, following month-on-month changes of 0.3 percent in December 2011 and 1.0 percent in November 2011.

The actual volume of electricity consumption increased by 0.4 percent year-on-year (y/y) in January 2012 and electricity production increased by 1.1 percent for the three months ended January 2012 compared with the previous three months.

Stats SA says the actual estimated electricity production increased by 1.3 percent y/y in January 2012.

The total volume of electricity delivered by Eskom to the provinces decreased by 0.2 percent in January 2012 compared with January 2011, notes Stats SA.

Notable decreases in volume terms recorded for Mpumalanga, Gauteng and Western Cape were to a large extent counteracted by increases recorded for KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape, Northern Cape and North West.  –Denise Mhlanga
