Parts of Accra to experience Dumsor from May 10- DETAILS

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG)has revealed that parts of Greater Accra will experience a persistent, irregular, and unpredictable electric power outage (dumsor) from May 10, 2021.

As such, the company has intimated that it’s putting in place a planned load shedding time table to enable customers to become aware of which areas will suffer such misfortune.

In the past few months, Ghanaians have been phased with a comeback of dumsor although the incumbent government in several communiques has denied claims of its reemergence.

Speaking on why there will be a cut in power supply in some parts of Accra, the CEO of ECG revealed that they are undertaking some maintenance exercise at the Pokuase Bulk Supply Point. The exercise is expected to last for eight days – for which it has become necessary for them to undertake the load shedding exercise.

That said, upon completion, ECG is expected to serve 350,000 households.

According to Kwame Agyeman Budu, Chief Executive Officer of ECG, the affected areas would be grouped in four. He argued that the load shedding arrangement would be properly carried out such that “no single customer will see the outage throughout for the eight days” of their maintenance work at Pokuase Bulk Supply Point.

“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 day time; the next three days they will experience the outage in the night time. It will be rotated.”

Some of the areas to be affected include Nsawam, Pokuase, and other yet-to-be-announced communities.
