Recent updates concerning power disruptions in Tema, Kpone, Kpong, and select areas of Ghana's Eastern Region point to the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) as the cause of diminished power supply. This decrease has notably affected consumers, causing disruptions in residential and industrial zones alike.

The Electricity Company of Ghana  (ECG) has blamed the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) for the recent power disruptions in Tema, Kpone, Kpong, and select areas of the Eastern Region which has affected both residential and industrial zones.

In a statement on March 28, 2024, the ECG said GRIDCo had reduced power supply to their Pokuase Bulk Supply Point which is the main supplier for these areas.

According to another statement on the same day, the reduction in power supply from GRIDCo has also affected the Smelter 2 Bulk Supply Point and the Kpong Bulk Supply Point. Consequently, numerous communities and industries reliant on these supply points experienced power outages.

Among the facilities affected by the outages are Ghana Steel, Palace Mall, Furniture City, Lovely Transport, and several others in the mentioned regions. Additionally, residential areas such as Yilo Krobo, Lower Manya Krobo, and others have also been impacted.

Despite acknowledging the disruption caused by the reduced power supply, the ECG statements did not provide a precise timeline for the restoration of electricity. However, ECG has assured affected customers that power will be restored promptly once GRIDCo resumes normal supply operations.
