Three regional countries, Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe are set to benefit from mini-hydro-power stations being developed by Practical Action.
Practical Action has started pilot projects in Manicaland to ensure communities and farmers in marginalised areas have access to electricity. The project involves generating power from small sources of water such as waterfalls and perennial rivers.
Speaking at the Harare Agricultural Show, Practical Action project manager, Fungai Matahwa, said that Manicaland was identified as the most suitable area because of its terrain and availability of perennial rivers.
