In his recent state of the nation address, President Mahama promised that his Government will add to the current installed capacity, 3,665Megawatts in the next five years as part of plans towards fixing the problem.

“Additionally, completion of planned steam generation units on some current single cycle plants namely TT1, CENIT and KTPP would add another 330 Megawatts to our generation,” Mr Mahama said, adding: “When this planned addition of 3,800 Megawatts to our generation is realised, it will assure our energy security into the future.”

In addition to these medium term measures, President Mahama’s Government has also planned short term measures including: the importation from Turkey, of two power barges of a combined capacity of 450 Megawatts at a cost of $250 Megawatts; the purchase of 250 Megawatts from the Emirates; as well as General Electric’s expected supply of 300 Megawatts.

In Mr Afriyie-Ankrah’s view, all the short term measures will help mitigate the problem by the end of the year.
