A couple of years ago the government of Zimbabwe passed a law that makes it illegal to install electric geysers in homes. This means that if your house did not have an electric geyser before this law was passed you are no longer allowed to install one. The Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (ZERA) instead encourages people to install water geysers but it seems adoption has rather been low. To help with this, ZERA is conducting a course near Masvingo next month to train those who want to learn about designing and installing solar water heaters.
INVITATION TO SOLAR WATER HEATING DESIGN AND INSTALLATION TRAINING
Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (ZERA) in partnership with SIRDC shall be conducting a five-day Solar Water Heater Design and Installation Training Course to improve local capacity in Solar Water Heater installations. The training targets people with a technical background preferably plumbing who are working for companies that design, install and distribute Solar Water Heaters in Zimbabwe.
