- Old Mutual Life Assurance Company Zimbabwe, the subsidiary of the insurance company Old Mutual, is planning to install a 648 kWp solar power plant at its headquarters in Harare.
Old Mutual Zimbabwe has applied for a generation lisence with the Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (ZERA) for a 648kWp solar pv plant at its Emerald Hill headquarters in Harare.
The insurance company wants to sell its surplus production to the state-owned Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC). This may require the construction of a 2.4 km transmission line to connect the solar plant to the 33/11 kV Dorset substation.
