Several parts of the capital of Ghana, Accra, and surrounding towns have started experiencing interruptions in power supply beginning today, Monday, May 10. It will continue until 17 May, 2021.

This has become necessary due to the ongoing construction of Bulk Supply Point project at Pokuase, being executed by the Millennium Development Authority to improve power supply in Accra and its environs.

The US$60 million project, which is more than 97 percent completed, is expected to be officially commissioned on May 31, 2021.

Ahead of that, Ghana’s power transmission company, GRIDCo, requested interruptions in power supply to enable the tie-in of the newly constructed Pokuase Bulk Supply Point to its 330kV transmission line.

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), in a statement, explained that the power interruption would be between 6:00am and 6:00pm, as well as 6:00pm and 6:00am in more than forty communities, which have been placed in four different groups – A, B, C and D.

The outages would be experienced by two alternating groups each day until the end of the exercise.

Some of the areas to be affected include Awoshie, Nsakina, Dansoman, Ashalaja, Tuba, Abossey Okai, Dansoman, Tuba, Pokuase ACP Estates, Amasaman, Taifa, Ofankor, Kokrobite, Fadama, Israel and Abeka market.
