GRIDCo And ECG Announce Three-Week ‘Dumsor’

The Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) and the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) have announced a three-week interruption in power supply due to a reduction in gas supply from Nigeria.

A joint statement explained that: “The reduction in gas supply due to maintenance works undertaken by a gas supplier in Nigeria" will be the reason for the stable power supply.

The Ghana Grid Company LTD. (GRIDCo) and the Electricity Company of Ghana, (ECG) wish to inform the public that due to a reduction in gas supply from Nigeria since yesterday, Wednesday 12th June, 2024 some areas across the country have experienced an interruption in power supply.

The West Africa Gas Pipeline Company (WAPCo), in a statement, has explained that the reduction in gas supply was due to maintenance works being undertaken by a gas supplier in Nigeria and is projected to last three (3) weeks.

The maintenance has caused a reduction in overall power generation capacity in Ghana which could result in load management over the period of the work.

GRIDCo and ECG however, wish to assure the public that we are collaborating with other stakeholders in the power value chain to optimise available resources to ensure minimal impact of the reduction in gas supply on consumers.

GRIDCo and ECG sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused.
