The Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC) has revised the domestic prepayment tariff structure from a four (4) to a six (6) stepped tariff structure.
In a statement, the power utility said the decision was reached after consultation with stakeholders to give customers more electricity units and more buying options.
The last band has been reduced from $16.50 ZWL/unit to $10.39 ZWL/unit (inclusive of levies).
Below is the revised six-level stepped tariff structure:
- 0 to 50 kWh – ZWL$1.73
- 51 to 100 kWh – ZWL$3.46
- 101 to 200 kWh – ZWL$6.06
- 201 to 300 kWh – ZWL$8.66
- 301 to 400 kWh – ZWL$9.96
- 401 and above – $10.39
The power utility added:
ZETDC further advises that customers who bought prepaid electricity tokens on the old stepped tariff structure before this adjustment to six steps will be credited the difference in due course.
The power utility further advises that the Prepayment Electricity system has a record of such purchases and will ensure that such credits are processed to concerned consumers to avoid prejudice.
