Per a citibusinessnews.com report, MiDA explained the electricity would be fully restored after GRIDCO’s transformers are relocated from Tema to Pokuase Bulk Supply Point (BSP).
It is expected that the Pokuase Bulk Supply Point project when completed, will boost power supply within the enclave, and reduce transmission losses for ECG and GRIDCo.
In another report, the Minister of Energy, John Peter Amewu, has commissioned a 330/161 KV interconnecting Auto Transformer at Sunon Asogli Power Plant in Tema in the Greater Accra region.
