Residents of Kumasi, Takoradi and parts of Accra have been plunged into darkness for the past two days, prompting fears that the country’s energy crisis may have returned.

According to the Ministry of Energy, there has been a shortfall in power generation in the past two days due to technical challenges to one of the production units of the Bui Dam.

This coupled with fresh challenges to the FPSO Kwame Nkrumah have ensured that power supply to the Ashanti Region, parts of the Western Region and the Greater Accra Region has been curtailed.

The ECG in the Ashanti region confirmed that they were asked to shed load in the late hours of Monday when four out of five sub-stations had to be shut. The region is feeding on 40megawatts and a shortfall of 160MW.

In the Greater Accra Region, large residential areas like Achimota, Madina and Mallam, suffered power outages Monday night.

The problem has been lingering on for about two weeks but the black-out Monday night appears to have awakened public anxiety that the crisis may not be over.
