Eskom agrees to export 300MW to Zambia

Eskom has agreed to export 300MW of power to Zambia for the next three months to help the country tackle a worsening power supply deficit. Energy minister Matthew Nkhuwa had previously ruled out imports, saying Zambia could not afford to pay for more power, but the power deficit has jumped from 273MW in May 2019 to 690MW, owing to declining water levels in Lake Kariba and the Itezhi Tezhi dam, described by Zesco as the worst scenario in over 25 years.
