POWER SUPPLY UPDATE

 

ZESA Holdings would like to advise its valued customers countrywide of the reduction in generation at Kariba Power Station due to depleted dam water levels, commencing on Tuesday 1st September 2015 at 1800hrs, in compliance with the Zambezi River Authority (ZRA) requirement to scale down on water consumption.

 

Generation will consequently be reduced from the normal 750MW to 475MW until dam levels have risen to the requisite levels.

 

During this period, the Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) will take full advantage of the reduction of Units in service at Kariba to undertake the annual statutory maintenance, scheduled to be conducted between the 1st of September 2015 and 28 January 2016.

 

Whilst generation at thermal power stations is not affected by hydrological issues, Units at Hwange Power Station will also undergo statutory maintenance which will be completed by 7 October 2015, to ensure greater safety and reliability going forward.

 

The power utility further advises customers that the planned annual maintenance of Hwange and the reduction in water levels at Kariba dam will lead to changes being effected to the previously publicized load shedding schedule.

 

Consumers will experience suppressed power supplies until generation is brought back to normal levels.

 

Although the effects of load shedding will be minimized with possible power imports where available, ZESA Holdings urges consumers to use the available power very sparingly to minimize the extent and duration of load shedding.

 

ZESA Holdings sincerely apologises for the unavoidable inconvenience caused.

Why am I asked to save power at the worst possible time?

The idea and principle behind the conserving of energy is that it is better to INFORM the public about the state of the network and ASK them to do something to help, than it is for everyone to experience rolling load shedding of long periods. When you stop to think about it, it is logical that power usage peaks between 5...

You really make an impact

If you are wondering if you really make an impact - consider this. Nothing connects all of us together like the electricity network. Electricity cannot be effectively stored in large quantities. This means that when you turn on a light, that power needs to be generated immediately by a generator somewhere on the network. If there is not enough generation available,...
