GRIDCo announces two-month ‘Dumsor’ for Accra, list of affected areas
The Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) has served notice customers of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) will endure day-time outages from Saturday, April 9 to Thursday, June 30.
The reason for this project is to re-construct transmission lines from the Achimota substation to the Mallam substation via Avenor.
“This important exercise is to meet the growing demand for electricity in Accra and its environs,” the Company said in an announcement dated Friday, April 8, 2022.
Two 16kV transmission lines are expected to be taken out of service as part of the project. The outage will allow GRIDCo to upgrade each line’s transmission capacity.
“The outage will affect customers served by the Electricity Company of Ghana’s (ECG) distribution system crossing these transmission lines (between the Achimota Substation at Dzorwulu and Avenor in Accra) during the day, for the stated period. GRIDCo apologises for any inconvenience caused during the period.”
