Just In: ECG announces 16-day loadshedding in Accra areas.
The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has announced the interruption of power in some parts of Accra from Thursday, May 27 to Friday, June 11 at peak hours.
This is to facilitate work of contractors in an effort to improve power supply reliability.
Work will be on the Kasoa Bulk Supply Point (BSP) which is said to be nearing completion.
It will require a re-construction of a section of Ghana Grid Company’s 161kV Winneba to Mallam transmission lines and tie-in.
“This exercise will lead to a shortfall in transmission of power to Accra during the peak load hours,” ECG said in a release announcing the schedules on Thursday, May 20, 2012.
