ZESCO Ltd embarked on a project to construct a new electricity transmission line to Northern, Muchinga and Luapula Provinces. Due to increase in demand, the capacity of the existing lines could not sustain quality power supply. The existing 66kV power transmission lines that supply power to these provinces where constructed almost a decade ago when demand for power was very low. The increased economic and social activities coupled with an increase in the population resulted in the three provinces experiencing low voltages. This situation has hindered industrial development and affected the livelihood of people. For more information, download the attached document.
