We Don’t Know When ‘Dumsor’ Will End—VRA


The Volta River Authority (VRA) has told Citi Business News Ghanaians may have to endure the current power crisis for a while longer.

Ghanaians living in various parts of the country say they have been experiencing unannounced power outages. This has ignited public outrage over the refusal of the power companies to provide a schedule for what many believe is a new load-shedding program.

But the VRA says planned maintenance at the Aboadze Terminal Plant has resulted in shedding of over 300 megawatts of power.

Speaking to Citi Business News, Head of Communications at the VRA, Sam Fletcher, said ”you wouldn’t be able to tell [when] the crisis will end; you can only give a time frame when the repair work is coming to an end”.

He added that the power providers are working to address the situation.

Meanwhile the Public Utility Regulatory Commission has described the unannounced blackouts as unacceptable.
