The Ghana Grid Company Ltd (GRIDCo) has said power outages that occurred on Friday September 8, 2023 in the country were as a result of gas supply challenges.

Accra and other major cities were in darkness when main Bulk Supply Points (BSPs) went off across the country.

In a statement GridCo indicated that despite those challenges power was restored the same day.

“The Ghana Grid Company Ltd (GRIDCo), the “Operator” of the National Interconnected Transmission System informs the general public that following the System disturbance that occurred at 19:03HRS on Friday September 8, 2023, restoration was completed by 21:54HRS GMT same day.

“The disturbance occurred following a Gas supply challenge in the Western Region which led to very low electricity generation in the Aboadze enclave. To make up for this challenge, more power was generated in Tema and transmitted through the 161 and 330kV lines that link the East to the West,” GridCo stated.
