Despite the firm assurance that the seven days scheduled power cuts were all that was needed to resolve the ‘dumsor’, the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has once again released a new schedule. The new schedule for the planned power outages from May 27 to June 11, 2021, in Accra.
In a report filed by Graphic.com.gh, the planned outage is to enable the completion of construction works on the Kasoa Bulk Supply Point. The outage will help the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) undertake work on the 161KV Plant.
Fortunately and unfortunately, the next phase of the outage will be during the evenings from 6pm to midnight.
