The Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) has written to the Power Distribution Service (PDS) requesting it start shedding load from 8.00hrs to 18.00hrs each day in some parts of the capital, Accra.

The request for a 10-hour load shedding on PDS MV/LV lines, according to GRIDCo, is necessary due to the diversion of 330KV Aboadze-Volta transmission line at Pokuase to facilitate the interchange construction works being undertaken by the department of Urban Roads at Pokuase.

The letter noted that the work, which was originally planned to be completed by Thursday, 14 March 2019, will be completed by 19 March 2019 due to some challenges encountered by the contractor.

"We, therefore, wish to request you to extend the outage on affected PDS MV/LV lines in the corridor to March 19, 2018. The outage should be from 8.00hrs to 18.00hrs each day over the period," the statement said.

Ghanaians have raised concerns about the recent power outages fearing a possible return to the ‘dumsor’ days.

The PDS, however, said the blackouts were due to technical challenges and allayed fears of a return to 'dumsor'.
