Abstract
Electricity costs in South Africa have risen steeply; there are a number of factors that have contributed to this increase. The increased costs have a considerable inuence on the mines and mining sector in general. It requires considerable planning to assist mines in such management. The present study addresses the development of a way to predict both electricity consumption and costs, which general involves a large range of personnel. The majority of planning personnel can be more usefully employed in other ways. The goal is not to replace such planners but make them more task e_ective. Automation, which will reduce their workload, may have little or no e_ect o...
