There was a total blackout in the Oti Region and parts of the Volta Region on Monday, March 9, 2020.
Engineers at the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) attributed the power cuts to interrupted supply from the Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) at Akosombo.
“The issue has been identified and rectified and GRIDCo has restored the supply of power. We [ECG] will pick the load gradually and do the distribution of same. As we speak, some customers within the region are having supply so very soon all within the region will have their supply. I can assure them.”
Others still without light
Meanwhile, in a separate statement issued on Tuesday morning, ECG said power is yet to be restored to some parts of the regions following another technical challenge discovered by GRIDCo.
The company however apologised for the inconvenience.
