Eskom Rural Electrification

This widespread connection rollout forms part of state-owned power utility Eskom’s quest to achieve universal access by 2020.

Eskom group executive for distribution, Mongezi Ntsokolo, said in a statement on Friday: “We have intensified our implementation programme throughout the country, and we intend achieving an additional 15,000 new connections in the Eastern Cape before the end of the financial year on 31 March.

Earthworks are engineering works created through the processing of parts of the earth's surface involving quantities of soil or unformed rock.

Typical earthworks include roads, railway beds, causeways, dams, levees, canals, and berms. Other common earthworks are land grading to reconfigure the topography of a site, or to stabilize slopes.
