South Africa's Eskom will reduce up to 1,000 megawatts of electricity from the national grid at 1400 GMT and then cut as much as 2,000 megawatts from 1500 GMT until 2000 GMT, the power utility said on Wednesday.

The state-owned utility cuts power to prevent demand from surging past available supply as it embarks on a maintenance of its creaky stations.

It seems the Energy problem in Ghana is not peculiar to the country as even South Africa might be in a similar situation as Ghana soon.
