Zambia's Power Utility Increases Daily Load Shedding Hours to 129 months ago
Zambia’s State-owned power utility ZESCO Limited has increased hours of load shedding to twelve (12) hours daily with effect from 4 January 2023.
In a statement, ZESCO said the development was in response to a drastic reduction in available water in the Kariba reservoir for electricity generation as well as routine annual maintenance at a smaller power station. Reads the statement:
ZESCO Limited will with effect from Wednesday, 4 January 2023 adjust the hours of load shedding to twelve (12) hours daily, until further notice.Feedback
The Corporation’s ability to meet power demand remains constrained by the drastic reduction in available water in the Kariba reservoir for electricity generation at Kariba North Bank Power Station.
At present, the power station’s generating capacity has been reduced from its installed 1080MegaWatts (MW) to below 400MW.
