Dumsor due to technical challenges - GRIDCo, ECG

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) is blaming Monday’s power outage in parts of the national capital- Accra on a technical challenge from the Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo).

In a communiqué,  ECG explained  “that the outage being experienced in parts of Accra and other ECG operational areas is due to a technical challenge from GRIDCo”.

While apologizing for the inconvenience caused, ECG assured that the power supply will be restored to the affected areas once the glitches are resolved.

“Customers should please note that power supply will be restored to all affected areas immediately GRIDCo rectifies the situation. The inconvenience caused by this technical challenge from GRIDCo is deeply regretted.”

Areas such as Adabraka, Lapaz, North Kaneshie are some of the areas in Accra affected by Monday’s blackout.

In the past weeks, there has been a widespread power outage in parts of the country compelling some Ghanaians in the affected regions to take to social media to voice out their displeasure.

GRIDCo had taken responsibility for all the outages in recent times.
