Most parts of the country are without electricity after a total systems collapse on Thursday morning according to the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).
The incident happened around 5:24 am when ECG noticed a systems collapse in Accra.
Later it was communicated that Tema was also off, after which GRIDCO systems control centre confirmed that there was a systems collapse to Accra and Tema.
It is unclear how soon the problem will be resolved but a representative of ECG told Citi News their engineers are working assiduously to resolve the situation.
“We’ve just been informed by our engineers that there is a system collapse so all our lines are down which we are actually working on to resolve and restore power.” He said “all our lines are down, its nationwide. As at now we unable to tell the particular time we will be able to finish work to restore power but we are working on it.”
Systems collapse usually occurs when a generator is lost suddenly or a new generator is being added to the main power stream. It also sometimes occurs when load increases or reduces suddenly for various reasons. General faults can also cause systems failure when power is being transmitted from source.
