Ghanaians have been assured of a reliable power supply as the ongoing World Cup reaches an important point for the country.
The Chief Executive of the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo), Mr Ebenezer Essienyi, made this known during a working visit to the company by a delegation from the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC) led by the Executive Secretary Ishmael Ackah on Monday, 21 November 2022.
Received by the CEO and management staff of GRIDCo, the engagement with the Utility regulator was an opportunity for the two parties to connect on issues of mutual interest such as keeping channels of communication open between them, collaborating on tariff issues and giving formal notification of a planned visit in 2023, of African electricity regulators.
Mr Essienyi laid out alternative power supply options in place during the football Mundial to guarantee reliable electricity supply to Ghanaians and the country.
Dr Ackah, for his part, commended GRIDCo for its proactivity in guaranteeing power supply so there is no disruption during the World Cup.
The PURC boss also lauded the investments made by the company to ensure grid stability.
He encouraged the management and staff of GRIDCo to strive to operate efficiently.
