GRIDCO Gives Reason For Recent Dumsor In Accra
The Ghana GRIDCo Company Limited has come out with yet another story about power outages (Dumsor) in the capital city Accra.
Major parts of Accra were once again without electricity on Saturday night, April 3, 2021, as been the case in recent weeks.
But GRIDCo claimed in a statement dated Sunday, April 4, 2021, that the Dumsor came about after a conductor on the Tema-Accra East transmission line fell at Trasacco, leading to power outages in major parts of the Greater Accra Region.
It said “the maintenance team was able to work round the clock to restore power to Mallam, Achimota and Accra Central Bulk Supply Points (BSPs) at about 4:00am on Sunday, April 4, 2021.”
According to the statement, “power supply has, however, been reduced to 50% in areas around Trasacco as the team works to permanently fix the fault.
