General Information

The Energy and Water Utilities Regulatory Authority (EWURA), has broad objectives, including protecting stakeholders’ interests and ensuring service providers’ financial viability is sustained. In achieving these objectives, EWURA, among other things, issues licenses, formulates and enforces quality codes and standards, reviews and determines rates and charges, approves Power Purchase Agreements, ensures security of supply, energy efficiency, and promotes effective competition and economic efficiency.

 The Electricity Supply industry in Tanzania is dominated by the Tanzania Electric Supply Company Limited (TANESCO), which is a vertically integrated utility, wholly owned by the Government. TANESCO owns and operates the interconnected Main Grid (220 kV, 132 KV and 66 kV) connecting the major load centres. Construction of 400 kV Backbone Transmission Line from Iringa to Dodoma, Singida and Shinyanga has been completed. The main power plants connected to the main grid and isolated grid are summarized in   Table 1.
