"Some Parts Of Accra Will Experience Load Shedding From May 10 To 17" - ECG Confirms (Videos)
The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has confirmed that some parts of the nation's capital will be experiencing load shedding from May 10 to 17, 2021.
According to the ECG, the planned exercise forms part of its ongoing works at the Pokuase Bulk Supply Point.
Speaking to journalists during a site inspection, the Chief Executive Officer of ECG, Kwame Agyeman Budu said "We are coming up with a planned schedule for the areas that are going to be affected. The areas have been grouped into four. It has been scheduled in such a way that no single customer will see the outage throughout for eight days. They will see probably 12 hours outage in the daytime; the next three days they will experience the outage in the nighttime. It will be rotated,”
He further disclosed that Areas such as Mallam, Dnasoman, Abossey Okai, Kaneshie among others will have their fair share of the load shedding.
The CEO also used the tour to debunk claims that the recent power outages are due to human interference.
"The machines are programmed to automatically cut off supply to areas whenever there is a problem" he hinted.
ThinkNews Online has gathered that the project when completed, is expected to serve 350,000 households. Below are some videos and pictures:
