The Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) is assuring the general public that it has no intention of embarking on a nationwide load shedding programme.
According to the power transmission company, it is currently carrying out key projects to enhance power supply reliability in the Greater Accra region.
These projects are the Millennium Development Authority (MIDA) funded Pokuase substation and Kasoa Bulk Supply Point installations as well as the French Development Agency (AFD) funded Tema – Accra transmission line reinforcement project.
In a statement, GRIDCo said “the contractors for these projects are aiming at full-scale completion between the months of June and July this year. At some point during the process, the contractors will need to interconnect to the current transmission system. For this to happen, intermittent power outages will be required at different periods to safely connect the new installations.”
Consequently, it said these outages are not nationwide and will affect only parts of Accra and Winneba.
GRIDCO had said its recent media engagements about ongoing projects in the power sector, appear to have heightened perceptions of impending nationwide power cuts.
It however pointed out that it is working with the Electricity of Ghana, MiDA and other stakeholders to ensure minimum impact on customers in the affected areas.
It thus assured all Ghanaians that there is a concerted effort by all stakeholders, led by the Energy Ministry, to ensure consistent, accessible and reliable power supply at all times.
