"We apologize for the erratic power supply for the last couple of days" - GRIDCO

The Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) has rendered an apology to the good people of Ghana following the recent intermittent power supply.


According to GRIDCO, the challenge was as a result of generational challenge which was out of its control


Head of Corporate  Communications, GRIDCo, Dzifa Bampoh said "The situation was a result of a generational challenge that is out of the control of GRIDCo"


"Sincerely, we apologize for the erratic power supply that many Ghanaians may have suffered for the last couple of days.”


She further explained that GRIDCo is a transmitter and not a generator.


She stressed that GRIDCo has a view of what the generation is like adding that, it s the generation coming from its power plants whether they are hydro, thermal even solar.


“Unfortunately, there has been a shortfall in generation capacity, meaning we have not been able to generate as much power as Ghanaians demand.


“That is out of the control of GRIDCo and it is partly because we don’t have enough gas coming in to power some of these plants."


"That is why we had some intermittent power supply, so there is no load-shedding"


“What has happened is, on some occasions, gas supply has been low and as a result, we have had to reduce supply to ECG.”
