GRIDCo begins investigations into nationwide power outage
The Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) has commenced investigations into the cause of Wednesday night’s nationwide power outage.
The entire country was plunged into darkness Wednesday, May 3 around 9:30 pm.
Though some areas had their power back hours after the massive power outage, some are yet to be restored.
It is unclear what may have caused the problem, as reports on return of the era of load shedding (dumsor) have been rejected by the Electricity Company of Ghana.
A statement signed by the Head of Public Relations of GRIDCo, Mr. Albert Kwesi Quainoo said, though power has been restored to all electricity bulk supply points, there are still ongoing works to resolve the challenge.
Areas that are yet to have their power restored have, therefore, been asked to remain calm as investigations into the cause of the blackout have commenced and results will be communicated to the general public.
