The successful completion of Kariba South Power Station extension in April last year, has enhanced security of internal power supply in Zimbabwe with State power utility Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC), surpassing its energy delivery target for the third quarter of 2018.

This represents stark contrast to the extended period of time when Zimbabwe experienced rolling power cuts due to load shading or expended an average of US$50 million monthly on imports to bridge the demand-supply gap.

Minutes of a recent meeting of the management board of ZPC show that the power utility managed to send out 2, 521 Gigawatt hours (GWh) in the quarter to September against a budget of 2, 116 GWh, representing a performance of 19 percent above targeted energy for the quarter.
