How Come Trees Are Suddenly Falling On Transmission Lines To Cause Dumsor? Jinapor Questions GRIDCo

Former Deputy Energy Minister, John Jinapor has questioned the Ghana Grid Company Limited, (GRIDCo) explanations for the incessant power outages in the country recently.

In a post on Facebook, he questioned why GRIDCo keeps attributing the power outages to trees falling on transmission lines all over the country.

GRIDCo in a statement issued on Sunday, explained that the loss of power supply to some parts of the capital on Saturday was because “a conductor on the Tema-Accra East transmission line fell at Trassaco, leading to power outages in major parts of the Greater Accra Region.”

Questioning the statement Jinapor wrote: “Dear GRIDCo, all of a sudden, we are being told that trees keep falling on our transmission lines all over the country and causing massive Dumsor on a daily basis. How come?” he questioned.
