Update: Energy Crisis in Ghana

The lights finally went off this evening after nearly a week of constant electricity… except for some 10 minute blackouts now and then. :) According to the energy minister, the water level in the Akosombo dam has “risen marginally” and some 50 megawatts of additional power has been added to our national energy supply grid so we may be in for more of these blackout-free experiences. :D

I’m honestly sick of the situation but it’s useless to rant here so I’m going to go into denial instead and pretend I’m pleased with the new bonus hours we’re getting. :)

Ciao,

  3. been putting up and bearing with electricity situation and glad to find someone else sick of it and talking about it. yes seems to be improving somewhat although here in spintex road we still get our night lights off on schedule, we get it back early though, sometimes 9, 10 or 11pm

  4. Hi Nafisa,
    The situation really sucks. The annoying thing with these new “bonus” hours is you never know when the lights will die on you. It was really bad last semester with the heat and all but the lights have not gone off for two weeks here in Madina so perhaps we’ve seen the worst.
