    The Accra East Region of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has built a new primary substation worth $3.161million near the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) to boost power supply to the 6,000 customers in and around the area.

    The facility which brings to 22 the number of primary substations in the region, is expected to benefit residents at Kisseman, Westland, Achimota School, North Dzorwulu, Ghana Water Booster Station, Achimota Golf Park, Achimota Forest area, Pure Fire, Abofu, Christian Village, Dome, North Abelemkpe, West Legon and Mcbright Towers.

    Project funding

    The project was funded from the company’s internally-generated funds (IGF).

    “As the city expands we try to keep up with the development with the increase in demand. Day in day out we study the load grid and plan to keep up with the demand,” the Accra East Regional Manager of the ECG, Mr Jones Makumator, told the Daily Graphic.

    He said following the completion of the project, the reliability of the supply of power in the area had  improved, and that it was the primary substations that supplied power to the secondary substations that fed customers in their homes, factories, schools, hospitals, among other places.
