Last week ZESA, through a communique, announced the increase in electricity tariffs by 50%. In a strange turn of events, tariffs have been increased again by a further 50% of the ones that took effect on the 23rd of September 2020.

The new tariffs are as follows:

Tarrifs take effect from the 1st of October 2020

    Zesa increased the rates last week according to keep up with inflation. How can inflation go up another 50% in just a week. Zimbabweans are being ripped off once again

      It’s a good tool though

Your calculator is not including the 6% REA levy, but it’s quite a good calculator.

the cumulative price increase for 23rd and 1st October is 125%.. so that means you have to multiply whatever you were paying for 300 kwh by 2.25 to get the new price.

    You are not being ripped off my guy. ZESA is just aligning their price to reflect movements in price of inputs in production. Coal has gone up, water from Zambezi is now too costly, chemicals are out of reach etc. For Zesa to continue generating, it has to pass the costs to the consumer. Unfortunately.

further proving that zanupf is a tried, tested and failed experiment. the regime keeps imposing itself onto the people who have long since rejected it since the late 90s. zanupf is zimbabwes biggest curse and things will ONLY go haywire with it in charge.

sanctions are never to blame…smith geniusly busted UK & UN sanctions, Zimbabwe just has a regime that doesnt give a damn!

they are only interested in power retention and nothing else!
