Power Utility Company, ZESCO has informed consumers of extended hours of Load Shedding that they should brace for a 15 hours load shedding.
The electricity grid has lost 130 megawatts because of a power failure at Maamba forcing the Power Utility Company to embark on load shedding which will result in some areas experiencing longer black out.
ZESCO Public Relations Manager Hazel Zulu has confirmed this.
Ms. Zulu says there may be variations in adherence to the current load shedding hours until at a time when the situation will be normalized.
She also assured customers that that the corporation is working round the
clock to assess the impact of the deficit.
