“Lights Out Alert: ECG Signals More Power Outages During Peak Times!”

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has issued a warning to its customers regarding potential power outages during peak demand hours, specifically between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. According to ECG, 630 distribution transformers in various communities across its operational zones are currently operating above capacity due to heightened power consumption. This situation may lead to blown fuses and broken conductors, resulting in outages, particularly during the peak load period in the affected areas.

However, ECG assures its customers that transformer upgrading and new projects are underway to alleviate the strain on these transformers and ensure a more dependable power supply. To expedite assistance, customers in affected communities are urged to report any localized outages or voltage fluctuations to the ECG Call Center at 0302-611611 (also available on WhatsApp) or through our social media platforms: ECGghOfficial on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

The ECG acknowledges the patience and cooperation of affected customers as it continues efforts to enhance Ghana’s power distribution system.

In a related development, former President John Dramani Mahama and the NDC minority in Parliament have consistently advocated for the government to release a ‘dumsor’ schedule to assist businesses in their planning efforts.
