The heavy downpour of rains in Ghana in recent times has disrupted the supply of power in the country these few days.
The Electricity Company of Ghana Ltd (ECG) which is responsible for distributing electricity in the country came up with a communique to the general public in the early hours of Wednesday, May, 25th 2022 to address this issue.
The Company stated that, although they are working tirelessly to strengthen and maintain a robust distribution network, massive rainstorms and stormy winds usually cause the falling of trees, and billboards on their electrical conductors, resulting in power outages.
In the writeup, they revealed that “The major outages that caused the temporary interruption on our feeders are restored soon after the rainstorm.
However, permanent faults in our feeders will have to be rectified and may take a while to be restored by our engineers.
And individual or localised outages and incidents of fallen or saggy conductors within customer’s vicinities should be reported to ECG call centre on 0302-611611, the nearest ECG office or reached on our social handles via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram” – EGC Limited
They finally cautioned Ghanaians to be extremely careful during rainy days not to go near any sagging or fallen electrical conductor since it could be fatal.
