Govt To Outlaw Use Of Freezers, Stoves, Dishwashers To Save Energy

The Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (ZERA) is set to come up with measures to ban household appliances considered to be excessive energy consumers.

This was revealed by engineer Samuel Zaranyika during a stakeholders’ workshop in Bulawayo on Tuesday. He said:

The main benefit is that there will be a reduction in energy use. People are just using appliances which are not efficient and, after this has been enforced, we expect people to use appliances that are energy efficient.

Why have we actually developed these regulations? There are no efficiency appliances flooding the market.

You and I all know it. There is need for a great investment in the electricity generation, so by using energy-efficient appliances, we can actually create a virtual power station through using the energy-efficient appliances.

If we make a saving of 200MW, through the use of energy-efficient appliances, it’s actually cheaper than putting up a 200MW power station; and we don’t have the money.

According to the Newsday, appliances include air conditioners, audio and video equipment, dishwashers, electric ovens, refrigerators and freezers; tumble dryers, washer-dryer combinations, washing machines as well as induction cookstoves.
