According to the power distribution company, the heightened demand has resulted in blown fuses and damaged conductors in approximately 630 transformers nationwide.

The company clarified in a statement dated March 12 that it is installing new facilities and renovating some of these ones in order to guarantee a more reliable supply of electricity.

Speaking to JoyNews, ECG Managing Director Samuel Dubik explained, “I know the engineering team puts out these notices, if my customers are saying they didn’t get them, I’m sorry.”

The power outages are already being referred to by some Ghanaians as the “dumsor,” or return of the power crisis.

But Mr Dubik insists on Joy FM’s Newsite that “there is no dumsor.”

“But everybody wants to stay with the fact that there is dumsor. If there is dumsor that means there is a generational gap, or a generational problem.”
