The Ghana Grid Company has asked the Power Distribution Service (PDS) which is managing the distribution business of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG),to shed load at various Bulk Supply Points to ensure system stability in Ghana’s power distribution.
A statement issued by GRIDCo explained that due to the construction of the road interchange at the ACP Junction, Pokuase, the capacity of their transmission network will be limited.
The statement added that the construction has taken out of service the 330kV Aboadze-Tema transmission line traversing the road to enable the contractor to divert the power line.
GRIDCo anticipates that the construction works would be completed by Tuesday, March 19, 2019.
“GRIDCo has accordingly advised Power Distribution Services (PDS) to redistribute loads at various Bulk Supply Points to ensure system stability. This may result in outages to some electricity consumers,” the statement said.
