The Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) has explained the cause of power outage across the country.

In statement issued by a System Operator of GRIDCo at the National Interconnected Transmission System (NITS) said, If you happen to be experiencing a power outage in your part of the country, it has to do with gas supply challenges which has resulted in a supply shortfall of about 1,000MW and blackouts in parts of the country, including Accra, Tema and Kumasi.
