loadshedding in Zimbabwe

 

2019 LOAD SHEDDING PROGRAMMES

Load shedding schedules in Zimbabwe.The Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission & Distribution Company (ZETDC) is experiencing increased power shortfalls i.e. demand and supply mismatch, due to low water levels at Kariba Power Station, generation constraints at Hwange Power Station and limited imports. The power shortfall is being managed through load shedding in order to balance the power supply available and the demand.

Every effort is being directed at improving the generation capacity to ensure that supply disruptions are kept at minimum levels. In order to assist in reducing the power demand, customers are encouraged to use the limited available power sparingly, by switching off all non-essential loads. Domestic geysers, swimming pool pumps, Jacuzzis and other related equipment should be switched off at peak times for more areas to have power.

Please be advised that ordinarily, load shedding will be within the morning and evening peak periods of 5am to 10am and 5pm to 10pm respectively. However, the durations may be longer in the event of increased power shortfall to avoid the collapse of the National Electric grid.

The load shedding cycles will be in two stages as follows;

Stage 1; the first group of customers as listed on the schedule will be switched off as the power shortfall will be within planned limits.

Stage 2; Please be advised that the power supply situation is dynamic, in the event that the power shortfall increases beyond the planned limits, load shedding will move into stage 2. These are additional areas that will be switched off as per schedule when the shortfall is higher for the particular time.

Customers will be informed as soon as the situation requires stage two implementation.
Large power users are being requested to reduce their power demand during the morning and evening peak periods of5am to 10am and 5pm to 10pm respectively.

Solar

Basic components of a solar system

With the electricity costs and demand rising over the edge, most people are turning to a clean renewable, reliable and eco-friendly source of energy – Solar. Let’s look at some of the basic components that make a solar system and their importance.

  • Solar Panels

Solar panels, also referred to as photo voltaic panels, are built from a large number of individual solar cells, also called photo-voltaic cells. The greater the number of solar cells, the more effective the solar panel functionality. The main thing to know about solar panels is that they absorb the sunlight and convert it into power that can be used for many different applications (street lighting, heating systems, machine installations, charging of phones, cameras, signage and many other energy driven devices)..Solar panels are the most noticeable component of a residential solar electric system. The solar panels are installed outside the home, typically on the roof and convert sunlight into electricity. Solar panels are given output ratings in watts. This rating is the maximum produced by the panel under ideal conditions.

  • Solar Inverter

Solar panels and batteries produce DC (direct current) power. Standard home appliances use AC (alternating current). An inverter converts the DC power produced by the solar panels and batteries to the AC power required by appliances.

  • Solar Battery

Solar power systems produce electricity during the daytime, when the sun is shining. These solar batteries (deep discharge batteries) are a key component in a renewable energy system. Solar batteries require energy storage produced by a , a solar panel which will be connected to the utility grid. Solar batteries are very useful if you want to use an independent electricity network or in case of a power failure. Your home demands electricity at night and on cloudy days – when the sun isn’t shining. To offset this mismatch, batteries can be added to the system.

  • Solar Charge Controller

The solar charge controller – also known as charge regulator – maintains the proper charging voltage for system batteries.

Batteries can be overcharged, if fed continuous voltage. The charge controller regulates the voltage, preventing overcharging and allowing charging when required.
