Cold store operators at Asafo Market in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi say they are gradually losing their business due to the erratic power supply, popularly known as Dumsor.
According to them, they have had to dispose of hundreds of cartons of spoilt fish due to months of unreliable power supply.
A visit to the cold store hub revealed large hauls of fish had been disposed of or sold at cheaper prices for animal feed production.
The traders have also been saddled with the cost of repairing their huge industrial fridges that have broken down as a result of the power challenges.
They are therefore calling on the government to publish a load shedding timetable to enable them plan on how to protect their fish and equipment.
The cold store operators are reportedly angry that the government has failed to issue a timetable and also failed to truthfully acknowledge that the Ashanti region is suffering from Dumsor.
A cold store owner who gave her name as Maame Jane told Starr FM that all the fish in her store were being washed because of the water dripping from her defrosted fridges.
The traders are therefore calling on the government to speed up work on the supposed transmission lines to end the current intermittent power supply which is collapsing their business.
Meanwhile, Energy Minister Matthew Opoku Prempeh has announced that things are about to get worse in May, as maintenance works threatens to affect power supply.
He said the stakeholders are planning on how to implement a systematic power outage program.
In the midst of this erratic power supply, the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), has submitted a proposal to the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC) for increases in electricity bills.
The move has been criticized as a wrong one, particularly in the face of the inefficiencies at the power supply institution.
