The Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) has denied media reports suggesting that it has a scheduled 84 days of power outages.
In a statement seen by Starrfm.com.gh, the Management of GRIDCo, however, confirmed that it has started work on some transmission lines but says it will necessitate continuous power outages.
“Whilst we confirm the reconstruction work on our transmission lines has commenced since Saturday April 9, 2022 we wish to assure the public that the ongoing work will not lead to any DUMSOR.
“For the information of the public, Phase 1 of the reconstruction exercise of the transmission line from Mallam Substation to Avenor was undertaken and successfully completed in November 2021 without any significant disturbance to power delivery in Accra and its environs. Phase 2 of the exercise from Achimota Substation to Avenor will similarly not disrupt power delivery in Accra.”
