2021 State of Zesa Load Shedding in Zimbabwe A Good Reason To Move To Solar!

Did you know that in 2019 and 2020 we experienced more load-shedding than at any other time in Zimbabwe's history? 

Add to this Zesa’s efforts to increase tariffs and the Covid-19 crisis that has seen people working from home who are now more reliant on a stable electricity supply to stay online – and you start to get a sinking feeling. While there’s no end in sight to Zesa’s woes, there are solutions that are proven to work for private and business consumers.

In this blog, we will take a quick look at the state of Zesa and what you can expect in terms of load-shedding in 2021. DrillCorp Zimbabwe and its Solar Experts are in the business of finding the best sustainable energy solutions for our clients, so we will get straight to what you can do about it, and what you need to know before you even think about going solar.

The Current State Of Zesa Energy Supply in Zimbabwe:

It’s official; 2019 into 2020 was the worst year so far for load-shedding in Zimbabwe.

Solar Solutions Take The Sting Out Of Load Shedding:

While there are a few alternatives to Zesa-generated electricity supply, we believe solar power is still the most effective solution. It’s completely noiseless, sustainable and environmentally friendly, while also being free to run.

It should be kept in mind that the most significant immediate financial implication when considering solar power is the installation cost. But because solar is free to run once installed, it returns its investment within an average of 7 years, which makes it an exceptionally beneficial option for both businesses and homeowners.

Buyer Beware!

Not all solar products and services are of the quality you want for your home or business. Partnering with a solar solutions provider that has a proven track record and impeccable reputation will help you avoid the fallout from poor quality products and bad installations.

The best solutions providers are about more than the next sale – they’re passionate about renewable energy and helping their customers transition effortlessly to solar power. At DrillCorp Zimbabwe, we design and install high-quality solar projects with our own in-house team headed by a dedicated foreman who has the appropriate training, experience and qualifications. We provide a turnkey renewable energy solution, from start to finish. We are true believers in the revolutionary switch to solar.

Understanding Solar:

While solar power is gaining popularity in Zimbabwe, its benefits and the steps to take for installation are not common knowledge. Getting to grips with a solar solution for your household or business is one of the most exciting parts of the journey to renewable energy. Carefully choosing your solar solutions provider to guide you through the process will help you enjoy the ride.
