The appeals follow the release of a load-shedding timetable for the Greater Accra region by the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).
The residents, who spoke to Citi News, said a load-shedding timetable will help businesses in the region to plan well in order to minimize losses.
“They should let us know our schedule so that we can plan our activities,” a resident said.
“If there is a timetable for us in Kumasi, it will help us a lot. Residents in Accra can now plan because there is a power timetable,” said another resident.
In recent times, some parts of the country have been experiencing power outages, popularly called Dumsor.
The Electricity Company of Ghana has explained that the disruptions in the power supply are due to ongoing system improvement works on the Pokuase Bulk Supply Point and the Mallam BSP.
