Izititshi zombili lezi zigaya amandla kagetsi aphansi kakhulu nxa kuqathaniswa lenani lama megawatts amele avele kuzo.

Iphephandaba leNewsDay lithi imali le ikhangelelwe ukuthi izavuselela izititshi lezi zenelise ukuba lamandla kagatsi aneleyo ngoba andise ukusilela ikakhulu kusikhathi somqando esesisiya kuso lapho amandla ayabe esabiwa khona.

Ilizwe libikwa lifuna isilinganiso samandla kagetsi ayedlula ama megawatt ayinkulungwane eyodwa lengxenye, 1,400 MW - kodwa lona lenelisa ukuthola angaphansi kancane kwe kulungwane eyodwa, i1 000 MW.

Nxa isititshi samandla kagetsi eHwange singasenza kahle silakho ukukhipha ama megawatt angu 920 kule 327 MW ekhona khathesi. Isitishi seKariba sona sikhipha amandla ayisilinganiso se 669MW sona singagaya amandla ayi 750 MW.

Ibhanga le Standard Bank libambisana lele Eastern and Southern African Trade and Development Bank (elalisaziwa ngokuthi yi PTA Bank) yiwo abikwa ekhokhela enkulumeni ezenza imali yokuvuselela izititshi lezi iphumelele.
