Amazon produces its own electricity in South Africa

Amazon set up its African web services hub in South Africa, but that has brought its own problems – namely, power supply. Now the US company has decided to circumvent the country’s electricity problems by generating its own.

South Africa has been turning loads on and off for 13 years. Recently, competitive electricity supplier Eskom said it must continue to shut down parts of the country as power outages are required to restore much-needed electricity resources.
