ECG releases new load shedding timetable

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has released a new load shedding guide for consumers to cater for power generation shortfalls.

The February 6 to March 5 schedule will see demarcated areas go off from 6:00am to 7:00pm in the day and from 6:00pm to 6:00am in the night.

While some areas go off, others have been put on stand-by "and may or may not go off, depending on the quantum of power to be shed."

The country currently sheds 650 megawatts during peak periods and 440 megawatts during off-peak hours.

Special institutions such as hospitals and airports are exempt from the exercise.

Attached above is a copy of the new load shedding timetable.
