ZIMBABWE: ZETDC wants to boost its power generation through net-metering

The Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC), a subsidiary of the Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (ZESA), the national electricity company, recently invited Independent Power Producers (IPPs) to surrender their surplus electricity generation to the national electricity grid. This will be done in the context of a net-metering programme. This divestiture model is expected to reduce Zimbabwe’s need to import electricity as it lacks foreign exchange.
