Basic school pupil woos in to save Ghana’s energy problem


The Energy Commission has charged basic school pupils in the northern region to ensure that their parents use electricity judiciously.
The commission says it is molding students to be ambassadors of energy conservation and hope that they demand from their parents to put off all electrical appliances anytime they are leaving their homes.
Energy conservation, the commission said, is a very serious issue not only in Ghana but in the developed countries.
The commission is also encouraging electricity consumers to iron their clothing in bulks instead of pieces.
It urged electricity consumers to use energy efficient appliances in their homes and offices to help restore and stabilize power in the country.
It is also advising property owners to take earthen of their houses seriously to prevent unnecessary fire outbreaks the country has been experiencing for some time now.
The public relations officer at the energy commission, Victor Owusu stated this at a day’s sensitization forum dubbed: ‘Save a watt campaign’ in Tamale.
The commission attributes fire outbreaks in homes and some major markets in Ghana to poor earthen systems and wiring and urged electricity consumers to take earthen wiring seriously to prevent recurring of fire outbreaks in the country.
Mr Owusu said Ghanaians must change their way of using electricity so that a lot of energy can be conserved. The public relations officer of energy commission explained that the campaign is expected to last for three months beginning from August to October 2014.
