Kumasi Power Outages To Last Till December
The Managing Director of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), Mr Kwame Agyeman-Budu, has asked residents of Kumasi in the Ashanti region to brace up for more power outages from now till the end of the year.
He said the current situation of unannounced power outages could persist till the end of the year by which time the company would have resolved the challenges facing its power systems.
According to him, the situation being experienced by a section of residents in Kumasi and its environs was due to system challenges and not generation problems.
However, he said the company was unable to provide a timetable for the power outage as there was no planned programme to take-off power.
“We take off power as and when GRIDCo reduces power supply to us so as of now, we cannot tell when and where will go off at a particular time”, he said.
