ECG to release ‘dumsor’ timetable for selected areas in Accra
The Electricity Company of Ghana is set to release a ‘dumsor’ timetable
as it announces planned outages for selected areas in Accra,
starting May 10 to 17, 2021. According to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
of the Company, Agyemang Budu, this has become necessary due to
the ongoing works on the Pokuase Bulk Supply Point.
GRIDCO had earlier warned of imminent power cuts based on a request
by contractors working on the Kasoa and Pokuase substations.
Kwame Agyemang Budu disclosed this during a tour of the Pokuase
Bulk Supply Point led by the energy minister.
