GRiDCo working to restore power after total shutdown


The country experienced unexpected massive power outages today Sunday, March 7, 2021.

This happened after the Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRiDCo) experienced a challenge in the power distribution system which eventually led to a total shutdown leading to an interruption in power supply across the country.

A press statement released from GRiDCo this afternoon confirmed the total power outages and assured Ghanaians that its team of engineers were working to restore power back to Bulk Supply Points (BSPs) in the country.

The statement informed relevant stakeholders that it was also working to ascertain the reasons behind the total system shutdown in due course.

Accra experienced a total power outage this afternoon from 2pm but it wasn’t until about an hour later that people realised that indeed the power outages were country-wide after people reported on social media platforms that they had light off almost everywhere in Ghana.

By 4pm this afternoon, power started coming back into people’s homes as it was gradually restored back to normalcy across the country.
