The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has announced that the third phase of the scheduled power outages will begin on Monday, June 28 and will last for 22 days, ending on July 19.

In a press statement issued Wednesday, ECG said the latest outage schedule which is to be done in collaboration with the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) was to help facilitate the work of contractors as part of projects to improve power supply reliability and system voltages.

As a result of this, the load to the Trasacco Bulk Supply Point (BSP) will be managed to enable the construction of towers at the Volta, Accra East and Achimota substations.

Explaining the planned outage, the Director of Communications at the ECG, Mr William Boateng said it would help complete the stringing and commissioning of a new double circuit 161kv Volta-Achimota transmission line.

He said the exercise will lead to a shortfall in transmission of power to Accra during the peak load hours from 6pm to 12midnight each day.

“We have had two successful outages and we hope this scheduled one will be equally successful.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this would cause, but we do so, knowing that eventually, it will improve the service we render,” Mr Boateng said.
