The Electricity Company of Ghana in the Western Region has commenced a project to extend electricity supply to Whindo, a suburb of Takoradi.
Whindo, one of the fastest growing suburbs in Takoradi has seen a lot of residential developments in recent times.
However, due to the unavailability of a standard LV Network in the area, a lot of people have resorted to illegal interconnections which invariably put lives and properties at risk.
The project, therefore, seeks to extend supply to the newly built residential facilities and also improve upon the existing network.
The Regional General Manager, Ing. Jacqueline Ofori-Atta indicated that the project will not only ensure reliable electricity supply to the area but also reduce the risk of electrocutions as a result of the many interconnections.
“As a company, we are committed to our responsibilities to our customers. Our pledge to provide safe, reliable and quality electricity services to support the economic development of Ghana remains unshaken” Ing. Ofori-Atta noted.
She further disclosed that the estimated cost of the project is GH¢1,271,488.87 with an installation component of GH¢157,149.31.
On his part, the Regional Engineer, Ing. Ebenezer Ghunney noted that the project will see the installation of six (6no.) 200kVA, 33/0.433kV Pole Mounted Transformers.
This, he believes, will significantly improve the quality of power supply to the Whindo area upon completion of the project by the close of this year.
