Parts of Accra to experience dumsor - ECG

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has announced that parts of Accra will experience power outages for some days from Thursday, February 11, 2021.


In a statement, ECG said the power outages, locally known as dumsor will be over seven days in February and March 2021.

Some parts of Accra will, therefore, experience power cuts between 10 am to 4 pm on February 11, February 16, February 19, February 22, February 25, March 2, and March 5 for the next seven days.

The interruption in the power supply is to enable a contractor to commence work on connecting the Pokuase Bulk Supply Point (BSP) to the Kanda and Airport Stations.

"As part of the ECG Financial and Operational Turnaround (EFOT) project, the Millennium Development Authority (MIDA) in collaboration with the Electricity Company of Ghana will undertake interruptions in power supply to enable a contractor to commence excavation works to interconnect load from the Pokuase Bulk Supply Point (BSP) to the Kanda and Airport substations," the statement said.


The areas to be affected by the construction include Roman Ridge, Parts of Airport Residential Area, Air Site Hotel, Primrose Place and its environs, ECG Roman Ridge District Office, Accra Girls, Maamobi, and the Kotobabi Poly Clinic. The rest are Ghana Institution of Engineers, Ebony, Abavana Down, Kotobabi Down, Modex Filling Station, Alajo, Tobinco Pharmaceuticals, and Parts of Tesano.

The power distribution company added that it deeply regrets any inconveniences that will be caused.
