Almost every country has got her own fair share of issues to handle. Ghana's basic issue facing the country at the moment (among other many issues upon issues) and has been around for years is the inconsistent, uncontrolled and irregular electricity power cuts. It just never goes away, you rather acclimatize!
How many hours are the power actually cut everyday in your area? In other parts of your city? Your region? or nationwide? To what cost, in cedis and/or dollars, does the frequent power cut translate to? Are we even losing?!
logECG is a crowd-sourcing logging system for Ghanaians to report how many hours they experience power cuts everyday. By tallying data submitted by our trusted Power Contributor from different towns and regions around the country, estimating loss to the nation every second of each power cut can be more understanding and perhaps, tangible. The idea is to provide data enough for interested analysts, reporters and or developers to take advantage of, in extrapolating the side-effects and the damage being caused now (if any), and what Ghana can expect in years ahead.
logECG is in no way to shine light on Ghana's power crisis as the end results. The ultimate goal is to put the issue in terms of cost analysis, for interested stakeholders to 'appreciate' the scale to which lack of action is reducing productivity across all fields of profession in the country.
