ZETDC releases new tariffs, a slight increase in power but there is a lifeline expansion

The Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC) has released new prices for electricity. There is a subtle increase in prices but there has been an expansion on the lifeline charge.

Old prices

Consumption Bands kWh Price (ZWL$)
First 50 0.49
51 – 200 1.08
201 – 300 2.94
301+ 4.61

New Prices

Consumption Band in kWh Price per kWh (ZWL$) Total Price as a first purchase for the month (ZWL$)
0 – 50 0.52 26.00
51 – 100 1.14 172.00
201 – 300 3.12 312.00
301 upwards 4.88

ZETDC announced a new monthly charge for 300 kWh, pegged at ZWL$510.00. This fee seems to be some sort of expansion on their life line fee. So for the first purchase of the month, a household can buy 300 kWh cumulatively for a ZWL$510.00.

The power authority says this the expansion of the life line was motivated by the COVID-19 era we are living in. Their hope is that it makes things a little easier both in price for the consumer and on their systems at the beginning of a new month.
