Zanzibar (Unguja) is connected to the national (Mainland Tanzania) power grid through underwater submarine cables with a maximum capacity of 150MW. Likewise, her sister island of Pemba is connected through submarine cable from Tanga (Mainland Tanzania) with a capacity of 20MW. The new development at Fumba Free economic zones which include Fumba satellite city projects, development of industrial park and an increase of tourism investment necessitates the island to generate power within.
There is a great opportunity for power generation using eco- friendly renewable energy such as solar and Wind.
