Ghana: energy crisis

Odzagba writes about energy crisis in Ghana: “The lights finally went off this evening after nearly a week of constant electricity… except for some 10 minute blackouts now and then. :) According to the energy minister, the water level in the Akosombo dam has “risen marginally” and some 50 megawatts of additional power has been added to our national energy supply grid so we may be in for more of these blackout-free experiences.”
