11 500 Megawatts Required To Achieve Vision 2030 – Chasi

Zimbabwe will need to generate 11 500MW of power for the country to attain an upper-middle-income economy by 2030.

This was said by Energy and Power Development Minister, Fortune Chasi, in a speech read on his behalf by his deputy, Magna Mudyiwa, at the on-going Water, Sanitation, Industry and Energy conference in Bulawayo. Said Chasi:

I should point out at this juncture that an upper-middle-income society of 2030 is estimated to require about 11 500MW of power.

With the current installed capacity of 2 260MW we have, the work in front of us is really challenging.

The country currently has an installed capacity of just 2 260MW, with current generation below 1 000MW.

Power imports from South Africa and Mozambique have not been adequate to meet the deficit, forcing the country’s power utility, ZESA Holdings, to implement rolling power cuts across the country.

  1. Hey Chasi – you talk absolute crap. WTF do you think all that power is going to come from? You and your current crop of bullshitters liars and thieves won’t be around in 2030, nor will more than three quarters of the Zimbabwe population, all because of the likes of you who just talk crap, lies and steal. Heroes Acre or Rural for you, Chasi? Take your pick.
