Mining Companies are forced to cut short its power usage as part of effort to manage the energy crisis.

In December last year, the Electricity Company of Ghana decided to extend the load shedding management to industrial enclaves for a month, but has failed to review the timetable.

This means the mining companies would virtually be shutting down their operations every two days but it is unclear how this could ease the ongoing load-shedding for consumers and other businesses.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Mine Workers Union is worried the development could lead to job losses in the industry and therefore intends meeting the mining firms to avert any such repercussion.

On the other side, the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI) will hold a crunch meeting with various power producers to review its timetable for the industrial zones.

Chief Executive Officer of AGI, Seth Twum Akwaboah is confident a better solution will be met when the mining companies and other stakeholders in the energy sector are engaged.
