The delays in the implementation of the Gwanda solar project have cost ZESA revenue of about US $50 million, Minister of Energy, Chasi, said yesterday.
Chasi visited the site of the project in Gwanda and expressed shock at how little had been done and the lack of urgency in resolving the matter, given the power crisis in Zimbabwe.
This solar plant would have been commissioned around December 2017 and the delay has resulted in loss of sales by ZESA equivalent to 500 megawatts. This translates to revenue loss of about US$50 million as of June 2019.
