We Are Not Going Back To Dumsor, We Leave That To Mahama – Akufo-Addo1 min read
On Tuesday, 13th June 2023, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo commissioned the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) and Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) Accra Central Bulk Supply Point.
The point was constructed under the Project for the Reinforcement of Power Supply to Accra Central.
It is a one hundred and sixty-one kilo-Volt Bulk Supply Point, which delivers on the government’s commitment to “Keep the Lights On”.
It also guarantees stable, reliable and regular supply of electricity for the busy and bustling Accra Central Business District and surrounding areas.
This Bulk Supply Point is a gas-insulated sub-station, which is GRIDCo’s first sub-station with such technology.
With the operationalization of the Accra Central BSP, power voltages have become stable (protecting valuable equipment), power supply reliability has improved, and, with this, efficiency has been restored, reducing system losses as required by the regulator, Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC).
The government will continue to work towards “Keeping the Lights on”, in spite of the global dynamics of energy pricing because the alternative is not an option.
“We are not going back to dumsor, we leave that to President Mahama,” he said.
