Ghanaians are expected to have an increase in electricity supply this Christmas, as the current load shedding improves to 12 hours off, 24hrs on.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo), Mr William Amuna has attributed this to power generated by the Karpower ship from Turkey, which is currently producing about 215.22 megawatts.

“There is an ease in the load shedding, and we are doing less than 300 megawatts and it is our hope there would be enough power available for the Christmas festivities,” he told Daily Graphic recently.
