Public Relations Officer (PRO) for the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), Western Region, says it is not clear when the current ‘load shedding’ exercise in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis will end.

For the past three weeks, parts of the metropolis have suffered intermittent power cuts with affected communities going off the national grid from 6:00pm to 11:00pm on affected days.

Speaking to issue on the Jolly Breakfast Show on Skyy Power FM, PRO for the ECG in the Western Region while denying a return of the much dreaded ‘dumsor’, Benjamin Quarcoo said his outfit cannot tell when the situation will improve.

‘‘At this point in time, we have power and we have supplied all our customers so as far as we are concerned, the situation no longer persists but we don’t know what will happen in the future. And the future could be this afternoon or even next year’’ he said.

When asked if this was the return of the dreaded ‘dumsor’, Benjamin Quarcoo said there is no such thing.
‘‘We can’t call it dumsor. Doing that would suggest we have created a schedule according to which we ration power or shed load, or we know what is happening for which reason we cannot distribute power to some communities’’ he concluded.
