The erratic power situation in the country seems to have further stabilized the past few day as more plants contribute more power.  The positive turn of the energy crisis started early last week when engineers from the Volta River Authority,  the  Aboadze Thermal Plant which was producing 200 MW of power is now producing 350 MW as at Tuesday afternoon.

This is because the faulty compressor at the Atuabo Gas Plant has been fixed and is now supplying more gas than before. The positive situation seem to have been further entrenched towards the end of the week when the T3 Thermal Plant which was producing a little over 100 MW is now producing about 350 MW

The thermal plants in the country are also receiving more gas supply as Nigeria increases supply of gas to   the West African Gas Pipeline for onward distribution to the country’s thermal plants.

Another piece of good news coming through from the Volta River Authority reveal that the water levels at the Akosombo Dam has also picked up, and is now producing 700 MW of power. The country’s load shedding conundrum was worsened in early July 2015, as water levels dropped below the limit of 240 feet.

There’s more optimism that the power situation will further improve in November when the Karpower Ship which is expected to produce 225 MW will arrive in the country in October, and will be connected to the grid in November. Media checks reveal that the barges are ready, and preparations are prime for the power ship’s arrival into the country.

So we ask, Which part of the” dumsor” ( energy crises) scale  do you find yourself? Are you with the communities enjoying  more “sor”( supply) in the past two weeks or its business as usual?
