South Africans Unite to Solve the Power Crisis

CapeTownMagazine.com joins The Power of One initiative to counter the electricity problems together as South Africans

Citizens of South Africa, together with media and corporates joined forces in The Power of One, a national call to action for the people, by the people to rally together to use less power and save South Africa from power cuts.

The Power of One has attracted a wealth of collaborators - from the man-in-the-street, famous individuals, small enterprises to large and powerful corporates who have rallied together to pool their resources to take The Power of One campaign to the nation.

These include Helen Zille, Pam Golding, Biz-community.com, CapeTownMagazine.com, Media24, Massmart, Nashua Mobile, Ireland/Davenport, TBM Communications, amongst others.

The Power of One is a totally independent, non-profit, apolitical, all-inclusive and positive endeavour to help alleviate the power crisis in South Africa.

The campaign provides a vehicle for national collaboration allowing every individual, business and government department to unite under one umbrella.

The primary objective is to reduce electricity consumption in South Africa by inspiring every individual - including children, teenagers and adults - to practice power saving methods through mass media messaging.

Max Pichulik, Power of One's project manager says, "The campaign is three-fold: it's about uniting South Africans to "plug into" the campaign, encourage people to actively follow the messages and then influence friends, family and colleagues to do the same."

The first message is a call to action for every person to 'SWITCH OFF'. The message is loud and clear and is a call to action to start cutting back on personal electricity consumption.

"It's time that we, as the man in the street, take the bull by the horns," adds Pichulik, "and become part of the solution rather than the problem.

If there's to be a future in this country, we need to create it! The Power Of One is about the power of a nation to overcome a crisis in a positive and proactive manner.
