Crippling Power Cuts To Start – Report

After nearly 4 years of no power cuts, ZESA is set to start load-shedding as water levels at Kariba Dam drops the Business Times reports. ZETDC reportedly sent a load-shedding application to the government and the government has approved that the power utility can start load-shedding. This exercise will see households and businesses going for hours without power per day.

The situation has also been escalated by the low coal output at Hwange which is the country’s biggest plant that’s fired by coal. ZESA is reportedly also battling machinery problems at their stations as most of their machines have aged and needs replacement.

Power cuts were last seen in 2015 and they are set to return this year as a number of factors affect the production of electricity within the country.
