The Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) has revealed in a letter to the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) that parts of the Greater Accra Region will experience power outages between October 5, 2021, to December 3, 2021.
According to GRIDCo, it is necessary to shut the lights off to enable its team execute “planned works” within the Achimota–Accra Central Lines.
GRIDCo added that the decision has become crucial “to transfer as much load as possible to Pokuase, Achimota, Accra East and Tema in order to limit loading at Mallam and Accra Central substations.”
Some of the areas to be affected have been categorised into groups A, B, and C.
Group A – Adabraka Old Timers, Mamprobi, Chorkor, Ageege, Lartebiokorshie, Valco Trust, Teachers Hall, among others.
