ZIMBABWE’S largest energy company, Zuva Petroleum has introduced a multimillion-dollar solar project that will see the energy giant installing 180 solar plants across its service stations, Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) sites, and Depots by the end of 2021.
Speaking in an interview Chief Executive Officer Bethwell Gumbo said the solar energy investment is a long-term strategy for renewable and sustainable energy.
“Our investment in solar is part of a long term strategy on renewable and sustainable energy aimed at reducing our carbon footprint through lowering carbon dioxide emissions and ensuring uninterrupted energy delivery at our service stations and LPG installations nationwide,” Gumbo said.
After project completion Zuva plans to channel 30% of the power generated from the solar plants to the national power grid through a net metering system to support the National Agenda in Sustainable Development.
“Zuva Petroleum shall continue investing more in cleaner and renewable energies expertise as it takes full ownership to contribute to a green future for future generations.
“Energy Everyday is our Zuva tagline and as a responsible corporate citizen we will continue to focus on this responsibility to eradicate energy poverty,” Gumbo said.
