Power cuts in Kumasi will be over by Dec. 20 – GRIDCo

The Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) has reiterated its assurance to restore power supply to Greater Kumasi.

GRIDCo says since its 330kV Aboadze to Kumasi transmission lines at Bogoso was damaged by a communication tower, all efforts have been put in place to deal with the situation.

The Ashanti Region has since November 9, been experiencing darkness during the peak hours that’s 6 pm to 11 pm each night.

The situation, according to the overlord of Ashanti Kingdom, the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has destroyed all his home appliances.

Speaking in an interview on the Sunrise show on 3FM on Thursday, the Director of Northern Network Services at GRIDCo, Ing. Vincent Boakye assured that “by 20th December, the intermittent power cuts will stop”.

“It will stop on or before 20,” he stressed.

He added “we intend to improve on the services but the information wasn’t put out the way it was expected.

“What we beg of the people of greater Kumasi is to bear with us because it goes off depending on the load of the day. It will mostly go off in the evenings between 6pm and 11pm”.
