The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has announced that parts of Accra will experience scheduled power outages for 22-days starting from Monday, June 28, 2021.
The outages, according to the power distributor, would allow the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) to complete the last phase of repair works on some bulk supply points and transmission cables in Accra.
The last phase of the repair and upgrade works, which begins on Monday, June 28, 2021, will see an upgrade in the Volta-Achimota-Mallam transmission lines.
The exercise will cause an interruption in power supply to some 71 communities within Accra.
The communities have been categorized into 6 groups, each of which will be without power from 6:00 pm to 12:00am once a week, within the 22-day period lasting between June 28 and July 19, 2021.
Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, June 23, 2021, the Managing Director of ECG, Mr. Kwame Agyeman-Budu, appealed to the public to bear with the company as they work to ensure an improved service to Ghanaians.
