ZESA increased by 50% last week then by another 50% today and it will increase by 50% on 1 November

So we are getting dizzy with the electricity tariff increases. On 23rd September (just over a week ago) we reported a 50% increase on ZESA tariffs. Today (1 October 2020), those tariffs increased by another 50%.

Effectively it means ZESA tariffs are now 125% (more than 2 times) what they were 8 days ago. The story doesn’t seem to end there though, we should brace for another 50% increase in a month. Here’s a communique from the Zimbabwe energy regulator authorising this:

  • That means, assuming a stable rate of about 82, the cost of electricity per unit after 1 Nov will be just less than 20 us cents a unit. At it's maximum in USD days it was about 10c for pre-paid and 14c for post-paid accounts ... so how are increases like this justified?

  • I think the increase was better but if they do that we should have power all the the time and its better to switch off in the Afternoon

  • Hmmm, something does not add up. Purchased 299.1 kWh and that cost ZWL1140!!!
    Doing the maths, using ZETDC token calculator and Techzim calculator, all give differing amounts.
    Hmmm...
