Residents in parts of Accra, capital of Ghana, will from Monday, 28th June to 19th July, 2021, experience interruptions in power supply which is expected to last for twenty-two days.
The power supply interruption will occur between 6pm and 12 midnight.
In a statement issued by Ghana’s Southern power distribution, ECG, it said the interruption in power supply has become necessary to facilitate the work of contractors as part of the project to improve power supply reliability and system voltages.
According to the statement, the exercise would result to the load to the Trasaccco Bulk Supply Point (BSP) being managed to enable the construction of towers at the Volta, East Accra and Achimota substations and also to complete the stringing and commissioning of a new double circuit 161kV Volta-Achimota Transmission line.
“This exercise will lead to a shortfall in transmission of power to Accra during the peak load hours,” the statement said.
Some of the areas to be affected are Adjiriganor, American House, Lister Hospital, Palm Wine Junction, La Beach Hotel, Greda Estates, Sidalco, Teshie Maamli and VRA flat.
“While calling on customers to bear the inconvenience with us, we pledge our commitment to completing the project on time,” the statement said.
