The Zimbabwe Electricity Transition and Distribution Company (ZETDC) has announced that it is implementing the Stage 2 load shedding schedule.
The move has been necessitated by a technical fault at the power utility’s main thermal power plant, Hwange Power Station. Said ZETDC in a statement:
Due to a technical fault at Hwange Power Station, local generation is now depressed, and load shedding is now being implemented at Stage 2.
Customers will be advised on restoration progress. Load shedding is now being implemented outside the published schedule.
This, in other words, means that areas which normally experienced eight-hour power cuts will now go for about 16 to 17 hours without power.
