The Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) Limited has said it experienced a major disturbance due to “power swings” which led to a near-nationwide blackout on the night of Tuesday, 26 November 2019.

The company, in a statement, said the problem arose from the Cote d’Ivoire interconnection with Ghana, leaving several parts of the country in darkness.

“Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) wishes to inform the public that at 2:37 PM, there was a major system disturbance following power swings from the Cote d’Ivoire interconnection with Ghana, leading to outages in parts of the country,” the statement said.

Several Ghanaians, especially living in the Ashanti, Eastern, Greater Accra and northern parts of the country, posted their frustrations on social media as the outage affected their homes and communities.

Power supply was, however, restored to some regions and communities and GRIDCo assured that efforts were underway to restore the remaining affected areas.

“GRIDCo apologises for any inconvenience caused, and remains committed to its mandate of delivering reliable power supply,” the company added in the statement.
