Power Outages: ECG Announces Disruptions in Over 25 Areas in Accra

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has disclosed that numerous areas across the Accra East and West regions will face electricity disruptions, affecting over 25 communities.

Among the affected locales are Ghana Steel, Palace Mall, Furniture Citi, Lovely Transport, Kpone Barrier, Kingdom Transport, GPHA Terminal (Kpone), Sethi Realty, Abodakpi Farms, and Kpone Dump Site. Additionally, Bediako, Golf City, Kwabenya, Agbogba, Maryera, part of Teiman, Ayi Mensah, Katapor, Top Herbal, Bohye, Abloradjei, Pure Water, Pokuase Township, Fountain Gate, and nearby areas will experience power outages.

In a statement released on Thursday, March 28, ECG extended its apologies to customers in the aforementioned regions. The company attributed the outages to a shortfall in power supply from the Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) to their Pokuase Bulk Supply Point and the Smelter 2 Bulk Supply Point.

Despite this, the timeline for restoring power to these areas remains uncertain, prompting dissatisfaction among ECG customers who seek a timetable to plan accordingly.

The recent power disruptions have ignited frustration among Ghanaians, particularly following Energy Minister Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh’s assertion that there is no ‘dumsor’ (persistent power outages) and, therefore, no need for a timetable.
