About Company

The Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority, (ZESA) under the Ministry and Energy and Power Development was established as the producer, distributor, and regulator of Zimbabwe’s electrical power by Act in 1981 and formed in 1985. It has a number of subsidiary companies with various specialties in power generation, transmission distribution, regulation and communications. Since then we have had the Electricity Acts of 1985, 1988, 1990, 1992, and 2001, which formed the current ZESA. Two acts, the Electricity Act (Chapter 13:19) and the Rural Electrification Fund Act (Chapter 13:20) refer. This Act also formed the Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC), Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission Company (ZETCO), (now ZETDC), Zimbabwe Electricity Distribution Company (ZEDC), ZESA Enterprises and PowerTel Communications. Under the established structure, all power generation assets and operations are under the Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) formed in October 1996. Distribution assets (the grid) and supply functions fall under the Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC).
