Issue 401 - 11 Oct 2019
The government has approved a domestic electricity price rise of more than 200% from 3 October, raising tariffs to about US$0.12/kWh from approximately US$0.02/kWh. Following the rise, the second since August, domestic users will pay Z$0.41 for the first 50kWh and Z$0.91 for 51-200kWh, a stepped tariff designed to encourage energy saving in view of the country’s critical power supply situation.
