ECG Predicts Current Power Crisis Could Get Worse

The Electricity Company of  Ghana (ECG) fears the ongoing load shedding exercise could get worser then expected considering current technical problems power plants across the country are been faced with - a development which has seen the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) order the ECG to start shedding a reduced amount of power (600) megawatts from Thursday, October 23rd.

Public related manager at the ECG, William Boateng in an interview with CITI FM expressed that consumers of electricity have no option than to brace themselves for a severe power crisis.

GRIDCo off-peak load-relief is said to have resulted in a total of 210MW of power been cut to the Greater Accra region alone with 120MW to Ashanti; 120MW to Tema; 60MW to Western; 40MW each to Central and Eastern, and 20MW to the Volta Region.

In the meantime, government is expecting the first of two emergency power barges from Turkey by November this year as part of measures to fill the deficits of power generation in the country.
