Energy expert Ted Blom says Eskom is in bigger trouble than anyone is aware of.

The power utility is currently surviving on government bailouts and sits with debt exceeding 450 billion Rands, which puts the country’s entire economy at risk.

Bloomberg recently reported that government is considering a 160 billion Rands green fund to decommission coal-fired power stations and push renewable energy solutions.

Blom says Eskom’s sustainability is a big issue.
