1) The power situation can be resolved immediately by any decent caring & competent gvt . As a matter of urgency the regime should scrap the fuel subsidy to #Sakunda & #Trafigura & use that to guarantee importation of at least 400 MW of energy .
2) Secondly @ZetdcOfficial must levy & collect charges in US$ to guarantee permanent imports .If this is done it’s only fair & logical that energy consumers must also levy their labor ,services & goods in US$. Thirdly there must a be a scientific &systematic push to green energy
3)Fourth there must be resolution of the country sovereign debt crises to enable access to cheap funds held particularly at the World Bank & African Development Bank . Development Finance key & necessary to fund major infrastructure energy projects.
4) Fifth genuine & bona fide Independent Power Producers must be licensed , including players in alternative energy particularly solar , methane gas ,& bio energy . With this in place at least fresh 2000 MW should be generated from Hwange 7&8, Batoka, Sinamatela & green sources
5)Sixth is management of the transmission network . The transmission lines are old & archaic & lot of energy is lost decayed infrastructure including inefficient transformers & lines . At least US$500 will be required to sort the transmission mess
6) Seven is demand side management .They are some who think power is for free & that is why list of #ZESA defaulters can’t be published because it is the who is who of #ZANU .Pre-paid platforms, solar geysers , gas stoves , smart & energy saving appliances must be compulsory
7) Lastly the Development& Urbanization of Rural Areas (DURA) is key.Rural electrification is a necessary but not sufficient precondition to breaking dual enclave economy. Solar & bio energy provide a quick answer .A sustained program can increase GDP by factor of 2% in any year
