DUMSOR BLACKOUTPower was restored Wednesday dawn

Power Distribution Services Ghana (PDS), the new company which took over from Electricity Company of Ghana, said Tuesday night’s major blackout was “due to technical challenges”.

PDS in a statement said power supply from Mallam Bulk Supply Point and Graphic Road was “curtailed” resulting in the total blackout in most parts of the capital, Accra.

“This has caused power outage within the Western and the Central parts of Accra. Immediately the situation is rectified, power supply will be restored to affected customers. The inconvenience is very much regretted,” PDS’ statement added.

Areas such as Odorkor, Darkuman, Lapaz, Anyaa, Abeka-Lapaz, Sowutuom, Kasoa, Tema, Kwashieman, Awoshie and parts of northern Ghana were without power throughout the evening.

Power was restored Wednesday dawn.

PDS took over from ECG in February 2019 and is expected to turnaround the operations of ECG to make it profitable.
