THE Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (ZEAR) has embarked on a countrywide campaign to raise awareness on energy efficiency and safe use.
Energy efficiency eliminates wasting in homes, schools, workplaces and manufacturing facilities during heating, cooling, running appliances and electricals as well as producing goods while using less energy.
In a statement this afternoon, ZERA said: “We have noted with concern the increasing reported cases of electrical related accidents. Of the reported cases, 33 percent of these have been attributed to vandalism and tempering with electrical infrastructure.”
Increased energy efficiency has many benefits that are both economical and environmental.
Reduced greenhouse gas emissions, reduced demand for energy imports and low utility tarriff costs come with energy efficiency and safe use.
