The following alert appears on the City of Cape Town website at 1pm on 2021-3-13. It shows how much better the Western Cape, when allowed to, does than the rest of the country.

The difference between the Eskom and City supplied areas is because Cape Town has a limited but growing independent supply of electricity.
