Shortage in gas supply to blame for Monday’s power outage – GRIDCo

The Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) has attributed Monday night’s power outage in some parts of the Greater Accra Region to shortage in gas supply.

According to a statement issued by GRIDCo, “a reported leakage by Ghana Gas on its processing plant in Takoradi, curtailed gas supply to a number of thermal generating plants in the country,” thus, causing some of its customers to sleep in darkness.
