Speaking at the ground-breaking ceremony for the Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (ZERA) head office construction project in Harare yesterday, Energy and Power Development Minister Simon Khaya Moyo said the project will create 200 jobs directly and indirectly over the next 18 months.
Said Khaya Moyo:
I am pleased to say that this project is coming at a time when the new dispensation is achieving its target of creating jobs and more jobs for the people. Such a project serves as an investor confidence booster to all potential investors in the energy sector and beyond. This office will serve as a model of green building, encompassing energy efficiency and deployment of renewable energy. It will have a solar Photovoltaic (PV) rooftop that will generate power for lighting, office operations, refrigeration and powering computer appliances.
The construction of the building started in 2015 when ZERA held an architectural design competition for its new office building through the Institute of Architects
