In Zimbabwe, the country’s regulatory body on energy, Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (Zera), authorized the start-up of 39 solar projects with a combined capacity of 1,151.87 MW. The projects have a combined cost of more than $2.3 billion.

According to details from Eddington Mazambani, Acting Director General of Zera, three projects are in the design or pre-feasibility stage and have a production capacity of 111 MW while 22 solar projects are currently in the feasibility study or technical study stage. These 22 projects will have a combined capacity of 885.1 MW; three projects will have a production capacity of 70 MW and are also in the feasibility stage. Five other projects with a total capacity of 78.3 MW are in the financing stage or under construction.

The most advanced projects, six in total, currently supply 7.47 MW of power in the network, a capacity that is expected to increase to 25 MW once the initial phase of production is completed.
