Zimbabwe Government To Ban Electric Geysers

Government is crafting legislation to outlaw the use of electric geysers as it battles to reduce electricity consumption following crippling power outages that have hit the country.

The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Energy and Power Development, Mr Partson Mbiriri, yesterday said electric geysers consumed 40 percent of domestic power and that Government was working on ways to replace them with solar-powered geysers.

He said a statutory instrument would soon be gazetted to make it a crime to use an electric geyser and that an announcement to that effect would be made next week.
