Minister Chasi Commends Econet For Driving The Use Of Solar Energy

Energy and Power Development Minister, Fortune Chasi, has commended Distributed Power Africa (DPA), an Econet Wireless subsidiary for taking the lead in pushing for the use of solar energy.

Chasi was touring DPA’s recently commissioned solar power plant at Econet’s Willowvale office complex in Harare, he said:

I would like to congratulate the Econet group and DPA for taking the lead in driving the use and adoption of renewable energy which reduces the load on the national power grid.

… The government fully supports the use of solar power and sees the adoption of renewable energy as a sustainable, clean and long-term option to the challenges of inadequate power supply.

… solar energy can alleviate the country’s dependence on both hydro-power energy and non-renewable fossil fuels, and it can significantly reduce the importation of energy and save scarce foreign currency, which can be used for other national developmental programmes.

Econet Wireless Zimbabwe group CEO Mr Douglas Mboweni said that his company is encouraged by the support rendered to the private sector by the government.
