Mr Adolfsson said reducing on the wastage of electricity will assist in increasing the output of power being generated by ZESCO.


The Founder of Unipower stressed that leakages of electricity have the potential to damage power generators.


He said at the moment Zambia does not need new generators but rather improve on reducing electricity wastage.


Mr Adolfsson observed that reducing wastage of power during transmission will minimise costs encountered when there is a leakage along the grid.


He stressed that there is need for ZESCO to address the continued wastage of electricity during transmission to the end user.


He explained that leakages of electricity during transmission of power affects the quality of power being supplied to customers.


Mr Adolfsson said investors will only be attracted to come and invest in Zambia’s energy sector once the country has sufficient energy.
