Can "Dumsor" be really solved? This is the lasting solution offered (Opinion)

Can "Dumsor" be solved?

A question almost all the Ghanaian populace tend to ask anytime this issue arise. But this periodic flatuation in power in the country can indeed be solved, it may seem far too ambitious but definitely not unattainable. This is because with good decisions coupled with great leadership it can materialize.Generally the effects of "Dumsor" have been deeply felt by all, I am a testament to that fact, as some of my home appliances were badly damaged in the process. I consider it not to be a major loss, but let consider people whose livelihood revolves around electricity. It will definitely be a big blow to them that's is why this pressing issue needs urgent attention, swift and long lasting solution.

There are various avenues that can offer a lasting solution to this economic canker, from renewable energy sources such as wind, hydroelectric power, solar, and geothermal energy are generally far more sustainable.

In my best opinion I will recommend Nuclear Power.

What is Nuclear Power?Nuclear energy originates from the splitting of uranium atoms – a process called fission. This generates heat to produce steam, which is used by a turbine generator to generate electricity. Because Nuclear Power plants do not burn fuel, they do not produce greenhouse gas emissions hence Nuclear Power is the cleanest method that has ever been found to produce electric power. You are safer inside the upper portion of an operating nuclear plant than you would be in your own home.

If Ghana adopts this safer and cleaner way of generating electricity, not only will the country will be self sufficient in energy (electricity) but will also achieve optimum production in Agriculture and Food production.

This is because the by product of Nuclear Power which is radiation can serve as pest control to prevent harmful insects from reproducing hence combating pests and diseases, increase crop production, protect land and water resources and ensuring food stability in the country.

Nuclear applications in agriculture rely on the use of isotopes and radiation techniques.
