Power Sector Reform

In accordance with Government policy to embark on reforms of the electricity sector, a new Electricity Act (Chapter 13:19) was enacted in 2002 bringing about the restructuring and unbundling of the Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (ZESA) from a vertically integrated utility into separate successor companies focusing on Generation, Transmission & Distribution and Service companies.

The new Act also provided for the setting up of an autonomous regulatory body that would encourage new investment in the electricity sector through appropriate regulatory, fiscal and environmental frameworks, harmonized with those of the SADC countries and through strategic partnerships.
