The Association of Ghana Industries (AGI) is demanding that the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) excludes industries and businesses from the ongoing load shedding exercise.
Industries have expressed worry over the rise in production cost due to the power crisis facing the country.
The ECG is to soon provide a time table for the load shedding exercise, it is already embarking on, due to the country’s power crisis.
Speaking to Citi Business News the President of AGI James Asare Adjei said the current load shedding exercise is negatively affecting businesses especially those in the industrial sector.
“The lack of a clear timetable for the load shedding exercise is a big challenge for industries. We are calling on the ECG, GRIDCO and others to make sure that, at least we have a timetable that industry can follow to make maximum use of the time that the power will be on to curtail the huge loses.”
The President of AGI told Citi Business News that in spite of the call on power providers to come out with a time table its has asked its members to consider running a shift system to make maximum use of the periods that there will be power.
