PDS to publish load shedding timetable from today – PURC

Ghanaians may now heave a sigh of relief as steps have been taken to provide them with a schedule on the recent blackouts.

The decision was taken at a meeting between Power Distribution Services (PDS), Volta River Authority (VRA) and the Public Utilities and Regulatory Commission (PURC) on Thursday.

Confirming the outcome of the meeting on Eyewitness News, Public Relations Officer of the PURC, Bawa Mounkeila,  indicated that the daily updates on the blackouts have become necessary to relieve the ordinary citizen from the power challenges.

Government has come under pressure to publish a load shedding time table for the country.

The Africa Centre for Energy Policy, ACEP had indicated that based on the facts available, the current power situation is symptomatic of what transpired before the country was plunged into the dreaded dumsor era under the Mahama government.

It’s Executive Director, Benjamin Boakye said publishing a load shedding time-table will help Ghanaians plan their lives.

The call is also in sync with that of the Minority Members of Parliament who have also called on government to be candid with Ghanaians and release a load shedding timetable following the recent power outages across the country.
