Starting Monday, June 28, 2021, the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has declared that parts of Accra would be without electricity (Dumsor) for 22 days.
According to the power distributor, the interruptions will allow GRIDCo to finish the final phase of repair work on some bulk supply points and transmission lines in Accra.
The Volta-Achimota-Mallam transmission lines will be upgraded in the final phase of the repair and upgrade operations, which begins on Monday, June 28, 2021.
A total of 71 neighborhoods in Accra will lose power as a result of the operation.
The localities have been divided into six groups, each of which will be without power for 22 days, from June 28 to July 19, 2021, from 6:00 pm to 12:00 am once a week.
Mr. Kwame Agyeman-Budu, the Managing Director of ECG, addressed a news conference on Wednesday, June 23, 2021, and urged the public to bear with the organization as it works to enhance service to Ghanaians.
“We have plans to begin outages so that GRIDCo can continue upgrading… We want to notify the public that there will be some outages starting each day at 6 p.m. and ending at 12 a.m., and we’ll do our best to minimize the outages, but we want them to be aware that they should expect some outages during that time.”
“We’ve spoken with GRIDCO about expediting the work. We’re taking 22 days to finish the lines in all, so maybe by the end of the 22nd,” he said.
