Players in power sector will ensure consistency of power supply – GRIDCo assures

The Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) has informed the general public that the total power system shutdown experienced at 2:10pm on Sunday March 07, 2021, was due to a technical fault on one of the major transmission lines
between Prestea and Obuasi.

This situation, GRIDCo said led to overloads on other adjacent transmission lines, leading to a sequence of trips and an eventual power system shutdown in the country.

“Restoration works by the Technical team began immediately and power supply was restored to all Bulk Supply Points (BSP) at 6:30pm that same day. GRIDCo is assuring all Ghanaians that there is adequate generating capacity to meet demand in the country.
