Source: myjoyonline.com - The Volta River Authority (VRA) is set to shut down one more turbine at the Akosombo dam to avoid damage to the plant as the water levels keep going down.
Director of Engineering at the power producer, William Sam Appiah, disclosed this on Thursday during a working visit by President John Mahama to the hydro dam...
Mr Appiah revealed to the President that the only factor stalling the shutdown is the delay in the arrival of emergency power badges contracted by the government to mitigate the deepening power crisis.
President Mahama said the power ministry is counting on the emergency power generating barges to significantly improve the situation.
The President has in the meantime urged Ghanaians to aggressively conserve electricity.
Meanwhile, Power Minister, Dr. Kwabena Donkor said government is working unremittingly to bring financial closure to the agreement to secure the power badges next week.
The current energy crisis has brought untold hardship and discomfort to businesses and homes - a situation many have described as the worst in the country's history.
