The Ghana Grid Company and the Electricity Company of Ghana have established a revised Dumsor timeline for a part of Ghana’s Greater Accra Region. The load-shedding will last for a total of 22 days, during which time maintenance and repairs will be carried out.
The new load-shedding schedule will be in place between the hours of 6 p.m. and 12 a.m. on Monday, June 22, 2021, and Monday, July 19, 2021.
Contractors’ job will be made easier as part of efforts to increase power supply dependability and system voltages.
The ECG announced this in a news release on Wednesday, June 23, 2021. The load-shedding is being implemented in Accra to help speed up the completion of construction and maintenance on some bulk supply terminals and transmission lines.
“Load to the trasacco bulk supply point (BSP) will be controlled in this manner to allow for the building of the Volta, Accra East, and Achimota substations, as well as the stringing and commissioning of a new double-circuit 161KV Volta-Achimota transmission line.”
Despite the fact that multiple load-shedding operations have taken place in several places throughout the country, President Akufo-Addo has informed the public that Dumsor is not returning. He underlined that it was due to Gridco’s maintenance efforts in order for us to maintain a stable electrical grid.
