Stable and reliable power supply is on course – GRIDCo assures Ghanaians

Following the completion of the Accra Central and Pokuase Bulk Supply Plant (BSP), the Ghana Grid Company’s (GRIDCo) Operations Manager, Ing Mark Baah, stated that the government’s objective of revamping the country’s energy sector to supply stable and reliable power to Ghanaians is on course.

“We want to improve on our transmission capacity, and we do that because we are planning the system in such a way so that should any part of the country go off as a result of maintenance or fault, the customer should not even sense it because the remaining BSPs can come in to support,” Ing Baah told the media in Accra on Sunday (November 7).

Though other energy sector projects such as the Kasoa BSP, the upgrade of major transmission lines between  Accra and Tema, and the upgrade of transmission lines in Kumasi are still ongoing and will be completed soon, government has worked to significantly reduce congestion on existing ECG feeders, which “will result in improved reliability of power supply to meet the growing power demand in the country.”

Though the country is enjoying stable supply of electricity, these projects he explained, when completed will further lead to the reduction in technical losses along GRIDCo’s transmission system and ECG’s power distribution networks, thereby improving the financial viability of the utilities as well.

He said the days of erratic power supply, termed “dumsor” because of lack of investment in the sector, brought “so much discomfort, inconvenience, and put a lot of Ghanaian businesses on their knees” are over, adding that the country’s transmission capacity is currently being upgraded, which will help improve Ghanaians’ socio-economic conditions.
