ZESA Plans To Erect 10 Solar Plants Across The Country To End Load Shedding By 2022

ZESA has reportedly crafted a plan that will see the end of load shedding by 2022, The Standard reports. ZESA is reportedly planning to work with private investors to erect 10 Solar plants in the country which will generate approximately 500MW.

According to the Ikhupuleng Dube, the Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC) systems development manager, ZESA will award tenders for the projects to private companies by November this year and construction is expected to take place between 9 and 12 months.

Speaking to the publication Dube said:

Most of the plants should be in by June 2022. The estimated costs are US$1 million per MW, This means total costs for the 500MW would be about US$500 million.

Meanwhile, load shedding is expected to intensify in Zimbabwe after a break down at Hwange Power Station.
