The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has brought to an end the eight-day load shedding carried out in parts of the Greater Accra Region from May 10 to enable them to embark on ongoing system improvement works on the Pokuase Bulk Supply Point.
The exercise ended on Tuesday morning at 6 am.
The power distribution company announced in a statement released on Tuesday, May 18, 2021.
“Following the earlier notice of the need to interrupt power supply for the eight (8) days from Monday, 10th May to Monday, 17th May 2021, to enable the tie-in of the newly constructed Pokuase Bulk Supply Point (BSP) to GRIDCo’s 330kV transmission line, the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) wishes to inform the public especially the affected customers that the programme has ended today, Tuesday, 18 May 2021 at 6:00 am,” ECG announced in the statement.
It further indicated that “this project forms part of efforts to improve power supply reliability and system voltages.”
In the coming days, the Electricity Company of Ghana said it will announce other planned power interruptions, necessary to enable its contractors to complete maintenance works on the Kasoa Bulk Supply Point (BSP).
“Other needed interruptions in power supply to enable contractors to complete the next project, the Kasoa Bulk Supply Point (BSP) will be communicated in due course.”
