Ghana’s power transmission company, GRIDCo, has blamed Saturday’s power outages experienced in some parts of the country on gas supply challenges at the country’s offshore field.
Many Ghanaians, who have been experiencing power cuts have taken to social media to express their frustration over the issue.
However, the power transmitter noted in a statement that the development resulted in about 1000MW power loss.
“To prevent a total shutdown, power curtailment was carried out, which affected major parts of the country including Accra, Tema and Kumasi, ” the statement said.
“Gas supply has resumed upstream and power to the affected areas will be restored shortly, ” GRIDCo assured.
