The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has said Ghana has not returned to a load shedding regime  despite the current power outages being experienced in some parts of the country.

“Admittedly, we have taken note of series of outages in some areas within our distribution system, but we wish to state as a matter of fact that it is not load shedding,” the Director of Operations at the ECG, Engineer Tetteh Okyne said.

But addressing a press conference to explain current developments in electricity supply, Engineer Tetteh Okyne attributed the current power cuts to interruptions at ECG’s bulk supply points and some planned maintenance works.

He said: “Most of the time, there are faults that have come on our network and we have to respond to them as quickly as we can but the climax was on the Sunday where we had two challenges at the Mallam bulk supply point which affected a large area of Western parts of Accra, Kasoa, Nsawam at the same time we had another challenge and we had to put off the station at Baatsona which serves the Spintex Road and other areas.”

“So it happened that certain parts of the Western parts of Accra were off and some parts in the Eastern region were also off which raised some issues,” he said.

He said the company has so far rectified the faults, but added that other sites that require installing additional transformers are currently ongoing at Oyarifa, within the company’s Dodowa district.
