It won't be long after you arrive in Ghana that you hear someone mention usually with resigned irritation, that they have "light off" last night. This utility shortage has become part of life in Ghana. There something everybody has to deal with in one way or another, but they are by all means insurmountable challenges.

Dumsor is an Akan word that means off and on. It has been used since the electricity crisis of 2012. It's a fun, mocking way of describing the rather frustrating shortage of power supply in the country that result in unpredictable and persistent power cuts.

The Ghanaian government has recognized that a stable and widely available electricity supply will aid the growth of industries and the economic development of the nation. There are plans to diversify the country's energy sources and make use of renewable energy. The government is also making an effort to encourage energy conservation.
