Our Background

The Electricity Act also ushered in the formation of five successor companies, the Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC), Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission Company (ZETCO), Zimbabwe Electricity Distribution Company (ZEDC), ZESA Enterprises and Powertel Communications.
In line with the approved structure, all power generation assets and operations are under ZESA Holdings generation subsidiary, the Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) formed in October 1996.

ZESA Enterprises, another subsidiary of ZESA Holdings comprises of four business units namely ZESA Technology Centre, Production and Services, Transport Logistics and Projects. It is a flexible investment arm for ZESA Holdings that has a diversified business portfolio.

A separate Rural Electrification Fund, a Board and Agency have been set up under the Rural Electrification Fund Act, passed in January 2002. The Agency is administering a special fund formed under this Act to finance rural electrification projects. The Board is accountable to the Minister of Energy and Power Development.
