ZESCO Declares End To Load shading

ZESCO has announced the end of load shedding in the country.

ZESCO Managing Director VICTOR MAPANI says the country will no longer experience load-shedding.

Mr. MAPANI says households and companies countrywide will now enjoy 24-hours of power supply without any disruptions.

He says this has been necessitated by various measures which include restoration and upgrading of power generation at various power stations in the country.

Mr. MAPANI has disclosed at a media briefing in Lusaka today that ZESCO has revamped the Victoria Falls power station which is currently feeding about 20 Megawatts into the National Grid.

He said ZESCO has also upgraded power generation at Kafue Gorge Upper and Lower Power Stations by over 150 megawatts

Mr. MAPANI said the Utility Company will soon increase power generation at Lake Kariba from the current 250 megawatts to 350.

He said the anticipated upgrade is due to the increase in water levels in the Kariba dam.

Mr. MAPANI added that government also plans to begin the importation of about 120 megawatts from Mozambique once negotiations are completed.
