The ZETDC has taken the time to further clarify their electricity tier pricing model which has caused a lot of confusion on social media all over the country.
Writing on social media the power company said:
ZETDC would also like to advise that there is no promotion or any cheaper electricity to be obtained by purchasing on the first day of the month, as is being reported in the social media. Please note that these messages are not true and should be ignored
The correct position is that customers can buy the 1st 50 units at 41c, the next 150 units (51-200) at 91c and any other purchases beyond the 200 units arre charged at $3.87. These charges apply at day of a given month, be it the 1st, 10th, 25th etc as long as it is their first purchase of electricity tokens that month.
Social media was awash with stories promotion or cheaper electricity to be obtained by purchasing on the first day of the month.
