Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) has written to the Power Distribution Service (PDS) to request for load shedding from 8.00hrs to 18.00hrs each day on affected PDS MV/LV lines.
In a letter cited by GhanaWeb on March 14, 2019, GRIDCo noted that the work was originally planned to be completed by March 14, 2019, but some challenges encountered by the contractor during the execution of the work has made them envisage that the work will be completed by March 19, 2019.
“We, therefore, wish to request you to extend the outage on affected PDS MV/LV lines in the corridor to March 19, 2018. The outage should be from 8.00hrs to 18.00 each day over the period,” the statement reads on.
Some parts of the capital were hit by total blackout popularly known as ‘dumsor’ for 3 consecutive days after the takeover PDS.
