The Chamber of Independent Power Producers, Distributors and Bulk Consumers (CiPDiB) says it has engaged with its fuel suppliers to ensure that they make fuel available to provide regular supply of power to meet surge in demand.
According to the Chamber, strategic arrangements have also been put in place to enable staff stay safe at post to keep the lights on.
“As a Chamber, we pledge our support to ensure a continuous and reliable supply of power for the comfort and security of everyone,” CEO of CiPDiB, Mr Elikplim Kwabla Apetorgbor said.
GRIDCo has been urging power producers to up their game by making sure that fuel is available to ensure continuous generation to meet expected increase in demand due to the outbreak of COVID-19, which has forced President Akufo-Addo to shut down schools.
The development, GRIDCo believes, would lead to surge in demand for power.
In a statement assuring Ghanaians of its readiness to ensure continuous power supply to feed the national grid, CiPDiB said: “We advise everyone to ensure efficient and sustainable use of the available power.”
