“The Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) has announced, there will be more power cuts, as it works to upgrade its systems.
The company attributes the recent rampant power outages across the country to ongoing construction works on its transmission systems which will continue until July.
The above is the report coming from the men in charge of feeding the entire nation with the kind of energy that brightens the electric bulb in the home every time darkness threatens. Reducing it to the level of the needs of an electric bulb might be an understatement to the industries that feed on the kind of energy GRIDCO facilitates but it's time everyone starts thinking about alternatives like solar energy seriously.
Most people might consider a generator as a better alternative but the more reliable and long-term solution should be solar energy. It appears there is a foundational problem with the supply of electric energy in Ghana that needs to be dealt with once and for all for consistent and regular supply of power. It’s not normal that the same thing keeps occurring every year despite the abundance of brilliant minds and resources that can be utilized as solutions
