The 8-day load shedding exercise in the North-Eastern part of the capital, Accra is expected to end today, May 17, 2021. The power interruptions started on Monday, May 10, 2021.
State-power distributor, ECG said the power cut was necessary to enable its contractors to undertake some works to improve the power supply in Accra.
Minister for Energy, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, says he’s confident the load shedding exercise will end today as scheduled.
“There has been a dumsor timetable for those in Accra who are served by the Pokuase substation, and ECG published a timetable for that and it ends today. I cannot stand here and give you a yes or no answer, but we are sure that for whatever they needed to do and for whatever reason they came with the timetable, it ends today,” he told a Press conference in Accra.
