ZESA Promises Minimal Load Shedding During Festive Season
National power utility, the Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (ZESA), has promised that there will be minimal load shedding during the festive season. The good news comes barely 24 hours after the power utility announced that load shedding will be intensifying following the shutting down of 3 units at the Kariba Power Station for maintenance.
ZESA went on to say that rehabilitation works have been shelved to January 05, 2022, to ensure minimal disruption to the power supply during the festive season. In a statement, ZESA said,
UPDATE ON THE RESTORATION OF POWER SUPPLY
ZESA Holdings would like to advise its valued customers countrywide that the three units that were taken out of service at Kariba South Hydro Power station to facilitate urgent dam wall rehabilitation works have since been returned to service.
The return to service of the units has restored 450MW of power supply to the national grid, thus significantly reducing the power supply gap that had increased load shedding. Furthermore, we wish to advise all stakeholders that the rehabilitation works have been temporarily shelved until January 05 2022 in order to minimize load shedding during the festive season.
Consumers are urged to use available power sparingly to minimize the effects of shedding. The inconvenience caused is sincerely regretted.
