Zesa hikes electricity tariffs

The Zimbabwe state owned power utility, Zesa has hiked electricity tariffs with immediate effect.

The reviewed tariffs will see domestic consumers paying an average of US$0,12 per kWh from the previous estimated US$0,02c.

The Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority approved the application made by Zesa earlier this week on tariffs review in terms of (Chapter 13:19) of the Electricity Act.

The entity has had the lowest electricity price in the Southern region in which South Africans pay US$14c/kWh and Zambians US$7c/kWh.
