Load Shedding To Ease – ZESA
So ZESA Holdings says that load shedding will ease. However it is not because of there being greater capacity.
ZESA says that people are now watching their consumption after the introduction of the prepaid meter system. For the ZESA people, it is simply a supply and demand issue. If people start watching their consumption then there is more electricity to spare which means it is spread around more.
Of course they are not taking into consideration that the more people who have access to electricity the more they have to provide. Their logic is like a phone company saying that because they have a prepaid system, their network is not going to be congested.
Maybe they are right but ah well, we will see.
So far 19,000 meters have been installed and the rest will be done ‘within ten months’.
