Dumsor is a popular Ghanaian term used to describe persistent, irregular and unpredictable electric power outages. Critical energy observers say that, the generation capacity of Ghana is good but the political interference with power generation and distribution contribute to the recent cause for dumsor.
Ghana's power supply sources are from hydroelectricity, thermal fueled by crude oil, natural gas and diesel, solar and also imports from La Cote D'Ivoire. Ghana also exports powers to Togo, Burkina Faso and Benin. Ongoing grid expansion will allow further exports to other neighboring countries in the sub region.
Many Ghanaians company were collapsing due to the irregularity of the power supply. The Institute of Statistical, Social and Economic Research (ISSER) in a report stated that, Ghana lost about 1billion dollars in 2014 alone because of dumsor.
