Role of CEC in the Zambian Power Sector
Efficiency and quality of supply is highly prized at CEC, without compromise. A state-of-the-art control centre ensures that the power system is centrally controlled. CEC’s extensive network and multiple power sourcing ensures high operational reliability to avoid failure of supply. We deeply understand our customers’ power needs and make no room for laxity or chance. CEC operates and maintains a robust network of transmission, distribution and power generation assets, with which it accounts for at least 45% of national electricity consumption. CEC wheels power for the national electricity utility and provides a path for the transmission of power within southern Africa through its interconnector with the DRC.
