Energy and Power Development Minister, Fortune Chasi, said the Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (ZERA) is looking at ways to come up with cost-reflective electricity tariffs.

ZESA Holdings, the country’s power utility recently hiked electricity tariffs which had become unsustainable. The country, however, continues experiencing rolling power cuts as electricity remains scarce.
