Blue Skies Ghana allays redundancy fears despite power crisis

Blue Skies is considering a number of options to address power shortages in Ghana; however it has no immediate plans to lay off staff despite media reports claiming the contrary.

Blue Skies Ghana has been running on its diesel generators for over 50% of the time due to load shedding by the Electricity Company of Ghana. The situation is being managed by Blue Skies at a substantial cost however the business is continuing to meet orders thanks to its back-up energy supply.

General Manager, Ruth Adjei said “In the short term we are okay, however longer term we cannot run a factory like this. We are looking at a number of options for the future including generating our own renewable energy; however to have a viable business we must also have a reliable electricity supply from the national grid.”
