Farai Dziva|The Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC) has informed the public that it will revert to stage 2 of load shedding.
This has been caused by a shortage of capacity faced by South Africa’s Eskom.
Eskom exports electricity to Zimbabwe through ZETDC.
“The Eskom alert will affect Power Imports. As such load shedding will be implemented at Stage 2 today.
PowerAlert Due to a shortage of capacity stage 2 load shedding is to be implemented.”
According to NewZwire Zimbabwe’s 400 Megawatts deal with South Africa stipulates that during this time when Eskom implements its own stage 2 of load shedding, it reduces domestic electricity exports to Zimbabwe to zero but electricity exports for businesses “are reduced proportionally to the load shedding stage”.
