Ghana’s power transmission company, GRIDCo, has attributed Saturday’s night power outages in parts of the Greater Accra Region to a falling of one of the conductors on the East Accra transmission line.

According to GRIDCo, the conductor fell at Trassaco, a suburb of Accra, capital of Ghana.

In a statement issued by the Corporate Affairs Unit of GRIDCo, it explained that the maintenance team was able to work round the clock to restore power to the Mallam Achimota and Central Accra Bulk Supply Points (BSPs) at about 4:00am on Sunday, April 4, 2021.

“Power supply has, however, been reduced to 50 percent in areas around Trassaco as the team works to permanently fix the fault,” the company said.
