Following publication of the original article [1] there was a citation error to a statement which attributed the Institute of Statistical, Social and Economic Research (ISSER) as the origin and source of the estimated cost of Ghana’s power crises. The 1st sentence of the 3rd paragraph of the article currently reads:

The Institute of Statistical, Social and Economic Research (ISSER) in 2014 estimated Ghana to lose between $320 million and $924 million per annum in productivity and economic growth due to the current power crises [2].

The sentence should read:

Power Systems Energy Consulting (PSEC) in 2010 estimated Ghana to lose between $320 million and $924 million per annum in productivity and economic growth due to the current power crises [17].

The incorrect reference used in that sentence:

ISSER (2005) Guide to Electric Power in Ghana. Resource Center for Energy Economics and Regulation. Institute of Statistical, Social and Economic Research, University of Ghana, Legon.

The reference should instead read:

Power Systems Energy Consulting (2010) Ghana Wholesale Power Reliability Assessment. Final Report, March 2010.

This has now been included in this correction article.
