  • “The load is growing because of the population growth and infrastructure growth so you need a lot of substations that can take the load so that they do not congest by the overuse of the stations already in the existence.

    The Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) says it was having a discussion with the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) for them to provide a load shedding timetable following major maintenance works expected in the power sector from April to July 2021.

  • A statement issued Monday, March 15, by Mr Amoako-Baah explained that although there was enough capacity to more than meet demand, works on the Pokuase and Kasoa substations, as well as other transmission line works across the country, have accounted for the intermittent outages.

    The Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo), Mr Jonathan Amoako-Baah, says the country will, in the coming months, experience some intermittent power outages as a result of ongoing projects across the country.

  • The Managing Director of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) Mr Kwame Agyeman-Budu has asked residents of Kumasi in the Ashanti region to brace up for more power outages from now till the end of the year.

  • But Mr Baah assured that there is no nationwide “Dumsor” coming.

    The Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) says only Accra and Winneba will experience power outages in the coming days following construction works on its main lines and at the main Pokuase sub station.
