kwabenaThe Power Ministry has directed the Load Management Committee to reduce the load being shed for the industrial sector from 130 megawatts to 100 megawatts with immediate effect.

A statement from the Power Ministry and copied to the Ghana News Agency on Tuesday said Dr Kwabena Donkor, sector Minister, who gave the directive, said the reduction was attributed to an improvement in the electricity supply situation in the country.

The statement signed by Mr Kweku Sersah Johnson, Head of Public Affairs, said the Ministry was keeping a close eye on developments in the generation, distribution and supply of electricity, and would announce further changes as and when necessary.

The power crisis, which the country had battled with for months, is likely to reduce from September with the introduction of various measures including the procurement of power badges to help contain the situation.
