He was speaking at a recent meeting with Senior Journalists and editors in Accra.
He said the ECG will make sure that where there are lot of offices, they will find ingenious ways of providing them with power to aid their work during the day.
Mr Dwamena also said the ECG is partnering with the Energy Foundation to embark on an intensive education on energy conservation.
"We have over the period tried to carry out some education on this but I think we’ve not done too work on that… We hope that in the coming weeks you we'll hear about education on efficient use of electricity," he said.
