The Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) says a fault on its Aboadze Anwomaso transmission line is to blame for the power outage recorded in parts of the country on Monday around 1:30 pm.

It said the development led to the loss of power supply.

GRIDCo in a statement said any inconvenience caused is deeply regretted.

“At 1:36 pm on Monday, April 12, 2021, the power system experienced a fault on the Aboadze-Anwomanso transmission line, leading to the loss of supply to some parts of the country”, the release said.
