8 Hours No Electricity Per Day, Here’s ZESA Load Shedding Schedule For Harare

Inverter ZESA alternative

Ridiculous is the word to describe the ZESA load shedding schedule for Harare. Darkness is going to be our ally whether we like it or not.

Essentially everyone is going to have 8 hours of no electricity each day. On a particular day you will get zero ZESA between 5am and 1pm and then the following day between 1pm and 9pm then rinse repeat… No escape.

Check out which days are which for your area:

The schedule

Why now?

ZESA says the Zambezi Water Authority has reduced the amount of water available to the ZESA power generators at Kariba Dam. Where ZESA was getting 19 billion cubic meters of water, they will now be getting 16 billion cubic meters. This is because there was very low rainfall in the 2018-2019 rain season and the water levels at Kariba Dam are now quite low.

The reduced water availability is resulting in only 358MW of electricity being generated at Kariba a huge decrease from the planned average of 542MW. ZESA says Hwange, Bulawayo and Harare thermal power plants are currently not generating much due to “old age.”

ZESA is appealing to all users of electricity to switch of all idle appliances especially during peak hours of 5am-10am and 5pm-10pm.
