Zesa has updated its tariffs for September 2022 taking effect on the 26th of the same month. The tariffs include the 6% REA levy. It looks like the tariffs are up by 45% across the board so expect an equally hefty increase to your electricity bill.

    Energy is the cheapest thing but they should have up by 30 percent to be fair

  3. Who

    How can the Zimbabwe dollar be stable when every month-end every government controlled services are reviewing upwards Zimbabwe dollar prices of the charges for services and products.

    At the moment a stable Zimbabwe dollar is a pie in the sky

    It’s unfortunate that the salary for a teacher is not enough to buy electricity for one month. Someone needs to wake up and face the reality out there.

    With the amount of loadshedding, one months power should last till the New Year. Thank you ZESA… 👏🏽

    These increases are without a drought unsustainable..
    It is not in tandem with the poverty datum line. The country manufacturing and other agri exports would be out priced in the region for future business..
    A serious audit needs to be undertaken to see where the income earned through consumer purchases for electricity is being erroneously used..

    Kindly advise a rough estimate of electricity usage for an average low and high density household in zwl.

    To the Staff writer who published these New ZETDC rates!
    Firstly they came into effect on 21st September NOT the 26th! And I in fact emailed the New Rates to at 0739hrs on Monday 26th!
    Secondly, the increase equates to basically 38.5% on 3rd of August rates, NOT 45% as stated.

    I think something is amiss here, the tariff hikes are unjustifiable. Maybe its due to the fact consumers no longer have mandate to complain ,we are just forced to. It seems we are just paying for the power we are not consuming. The load shedding is too much and at the same time you check your balance, you will be shocked, your units are heavily subtracted.

    Amazing how tariffs are increased when Zesa owes us units for cables that we paid for. This hike in tariffs is just an excuse to refund us less units, IF they ever refund the units. We have spent more than USD$150 in replacing stolen cables!!! When are we going to get our units Zesa bigwigs??? Answer us that!!!
