The Ghana Grid Company says it expects some level of load shedding to carry on for the next two months at least.

The Manager of the System Control Centre of GRIDCo, Frank Otchere said, ?what we have is short of expected demand? with respect to the current generation capacity.

He explained the present challenge with power generation was as a result of fuel supply issues, limited supply of gas from Nigeria, and insufficient hydro-power.

Mr. Otchere, ?said ?We hope some generation will come in from TICO?s new turbine generator which would bring in 100 megawatts capacity somewhere in the first quarter of the year. The VRA is also working on the Kpone-Tema Power Plant, which is also expected to bring in 220 megawatts,? he said.
