Ghanaians in some parts of the national capital will endure intermittent power outages from today, Tuesday, 5 October 2021, to 5 December 2021, the Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) has said.
The power transmitter noted in a statement that the outages have been scheduled to allow engineers to work on planned works within the Achimota-Mallam corridors for the decommissioning and replacement of existing lines with new higher-capacity conductors.
GRIDCo wrote to power distributor Electricity Company of Ghana that it 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.”
