2 October 2007 – As of the beginning of this week, Ghana will once again enjoy 24 hour electricity when the National Load Shedding programme is stopped.

This was conveyed in a statement by Energy Minister, Joseph Kofi Adda. The statement said that the deployment of compact fluorescent lamps was now underway and requested that consumers cooperate with implementation teams to ensure the replacement of incandescent bulbs with energy saving bulbs.

The minister also stressed the need for energy conservation and reminded all ministries, government departments and agencies to continue with their energy saving initiatives, particularly as related to air conditioning and lighting.

An expression of appreciation to the public was also conveyed for the support and fortitude shown during the load management programme, followed by assurances that measures were being undertaken to ensure reliable and sustainable power supply in the future.
