The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has released a new time table for load shedding in order to help the general public to plan their daily activities accordingly.
Power consumers must expect a 14 hour power failure during the day time, which will reduce a 12 hours peak period for power consumption.
ECG has just released a new time table on the ongoing load shedding within the country after PURC hinted that it would sanction the ECG they failed to release the schedule today.
According to the ECG officials, the delay in the schedule is due to the shutdown plants in Nigeria over worker’s strike.
On Saturday, the supply started again after oil workers called off their strike on Friday in Nigeria.
The nation’s power producers and distributors are finding it difficult to meet the targets required by industries, businesses and homes to run.
Due to low water levels flowing into the Akosombo dam, the Volta River Authority is also scheduled to cut back on power generation from October, while the Asogli thermal plant has also been shut down which includes the T3 and T2 thermal plants that are also out of operation.
William Boateng, the Public Relations Officer for the ECG in an interview with Starr News said, “Although Nigeria has resumed gas supply to Ghana but the consumers must save electricity.”
