Zesco has adjusted load shedding periods on the Copperbelt to enhance security by not load shedding at night starting from today February 13, 2020.
Zesco Public Relations Manager Hazel Zulu said that the Corporation has partnered with the Zambia police to assist in enhancing security.
Ms Zulu said Zesco is ensuring that there is more power supply during night time in residential areas owing to the spate of criminal activities recorded in the area.
She said that load shedding will be implemented more during day time from around 07:00hours to 17:00hours to ensure reliability of power supply in the night for security reasons.
“As a corporation we feel obliged to ensure that there is power supply in the night for easier movement and protection of the public. As a principle we continue to urge our customers to be prudent in the way they use power by using energy efficient lighting sources such as Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) for their security lighting and to completely switch them off once there is adequate natural light,” she said.
