The recent power outages in some parts of the country mainly the Greater Accra regions and Ashanti regions of Ghana has raised concerns warranting answers, as sections of the public are plunged into unannounced erratic power supply popular known as “Dumsor”
”Dumsor” to wit “off and on” or “sordum” to wit “on and off” whichever comes first doesn’t look like it will be tolerated by Ghanaians any longer.
Ghanaians remain well informed and remain cautious about the devastating effects this dumsor caused many businesses especially in the private sector when most manufacturing companies had to fold up as overhead cost went astronomical high in security other means of power generation.
With COVID looming around and being a scare of its own owing to the disruption it has created in the business and academic environment, Dumsor if at all cannot be contained especially not in these dire times where money is scarce.
Dumsor became so popular as people got so used the phenomena. Homes hand to resort to flashlights, lanterns, rechargeable lamps etc to keep their homes lighted.
There is still a lot to be considered with Solar energy for wide use at homes as sunlight is observed predominately in Ghana. Renewable energy is possible and until much is invested in this area we will have to contend with what we have, be it Dumsor or Sordum the value is the same.
