Mini-Hydro Generation Station


Zimbabwe has potential for mini-hydro power generation in the eastern region of the country. REF is exploring a number of sites that have potential for mini-hydro power generation in the noted region and a pilot project is scheduled to commence in the foreseeable future. Currently, the biggest off-grid mini-hydro is 80kW and was built by Practical Action and its partners along Chitora River in the eastern highlands region.
