Law To Force People To Use Solar Geysers Will Be Gazetted Within Two Weeks Time: Govt5 years ago
Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Energy and Power Development Patson Mbiriri has revealed that government will gazette new legislation to force people to use solar-powered geysers. Speaking in Mt Pleasant at the construction site of the Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority’s new headquarters, Mbiriri said,
My ministry is also promoting the uptake of solar water geysers under the National Solar Water Heating programme. In fact, the draft regulations have just come back from the Attorney-General’s Office ready for gazetting, so exciting times. As I said, we are just about to hit the bridge and shake it. The regulations on solar water geysers will be gazetted in the very near future.
Usually, when you hear a technocrat saying ‘in the very near future’, be wary of what they mean. But, in this particular instance, we are talking about in the next week or two, certainly not beyond, so it will certainly be in the very near future.Feedback
According to Mbiriri, the solar-powered geysers will save the country 40 percent of its electricity consumption.
