Ghana Grid Limited (GRIDCo) says it has no intention of embarking on a nationwide load shedding program.
According to the company, what is being tried in some parts of Accra is the result of two projects to enhance the reliability of power supplies in the Greater Accra region.
In a statement on Wednesday, March 31, she said the ongoing projects appear to have reinforced perceptions of an impending power outage nationwide.
The statement stressed in the statement that “GRIDCo wishes to reassure the general public that it does not intend to initiate a nationwide load shedding program.”
The projects are listed as the Pokuase sub-station funded by the Millennium Development Authority (MiDA), the bulk supply point facilities in Kasoa and the Tema-Accra transmission line enhancement project funded by the French Development Agency (AFD).
The projects will be completed in June and July.
GRIDCo indicated that at some point during the process, contractors will need to connect to the existing transmission system.
For this to happen, there will be intermittent power cuts at various times to “connect new installations safely”.
