Here Is How Much Electricity Now Costs In Zimbabwe
The price of electricity has changed in Zimbabwe after the Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (ZERA) approved a change in the structure of the electricity tariffs. Power utility ZESA which is now using a steeped tariff pricing system also added a new band which was previously unavailable.
According to a letter from ZERA which was sent to ZESA subsidiary, the Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution (ZETDC) the new electricity tariffs are as follows:
|Consumption Bands||ZWL $/kWh|
|First 50 Units||0.49|
- ZESA has now introduced a new electricity tariff band which was previously unavailable. They have now added the 201 – 300 units tariff band. This band is going for ZWL $2.94 per kWh.
- This means that consumers who use between 200 and 300 units the price of electricity has gone down by 36 percent. Under the old tariff system, 300 units used to cost ZWL$686.35. However, with the new pricing system, 300 units now cost ZWL$509.33.
- Anything above the first 300 units will now cost a punitive ZWL $4.61 per unit. Before the increase, consumers used to pay a flat ZWL $4.61 for all units in excess of the first 200 units.
Below is the letter which the regulator wrote to ZETDC on the 11th of June approving the new electricity tariffs and prices. iHarare is publishing the letter in its entirety below,
