The Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo), says it will from January 2015, resume the load shedding exercise to both households and industries.

Ghanaians experienced minimal impact of the ongoing load-shedding exercise during the Christmas season because of some measures put in place by GRIDCo.

The Assistant Manager of the System Control Centre at GRIDCo, Frank Otchere told Citi News they are working tirelessly to keep the load shedding at the barest minimum adding, “We are going to have a gradual reduction.”

 He explained that though GRIDCo is yet to fully resume the exercise, currently, some areas have had their lights gone off saying “it’s going to be something of this sort, we don’t expect it to be bad but month on month, as new generation comes in, we are going to expect that it’s going to help us ease.”

Ghanaians faced severe power crisis in 2014, which negatively affected the operations of businesses and individuals.

Mr Otchere further assured that they are building a power plant to help ease the energy situation in the country.

 “A power plant can take up to somewhere like three years actually to complete and install. But these are expeditious efforts that are being put in and that is going to see some of these plants come in within three to five months,” he added.

In a related development, the Volta River Authority (VRA) has predicted that there will be more power cuts in 2015. According to the Authority, the Akosombo Dam which is the nation’s major power production planet is running below capacity.
