The Electricity Company of Ghana, (ECG), has said it cannot be blamed for the current erratic power supply but has, nonetheless, expressed regret over its inability to follow strictly, its power rationing timetable.
According to the company, the worsening power crisis, is as a result of the increasing deficit in power supply from power transmitter, GRIDCO.
ECG is currently shedding 450 megawatts of electricity as a result of the latest development.
The situation over the past few weeks has gone bad leaving most customers frustrated.
Worst affected is the Korle Bu teaching Hospital, where dialysis patients have had to bear the brunt of the erratic power supply.
But speaking to Starr News, Public Relations Officer of ECG, William Boateng, apologised to customers for the inconvenience.
Boateng said ECG will consult with GRIDCO over the situation to inform its decision to review the load shedding timetable.
He, however, conceded that consumers had every right to express frustration, especially when the PURC recently reviewed utility prices upward.
