The Minister of Energy, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, has pleaded with Ghanaians to be patient and cooperate as the outstanding issues surrounding Ghana’s power system is being solved.
Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, made this statement on 27th April, 2021, when he was accompanied by the Minister for Information, Hon. Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah and other officials from GRIDCO, ECG and MiDA to inspect the ongoing project for the construction of a Bulk Supply Point (BSP) at Kasoa.
According to the Dr. Opoku Prempeh, unlike the Pokuase BSP he visited a week ago, the Kasoa BSP is a Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) harnessing 435MVA.
Speaking with the media, Dr. Opoku Prempeh pointed that, its construction will address the low voltage and frequent power outage challenges caused by the increasing domestic and industrial demand in Kasoa and its environs including Senya Bereku, Bawjiase and Nyanyanu.
“Upon completion, the programme will benefit 241,508 ECG customers by vastly improving GRIDCO’s power transmission system”, he revealed.
Dr. Opoku Prempeh said, at the inspection site, it was pleasant to note the considerable number of Ghanaian engineers who have been employed to work on the ongoing project, which is a sign that Ghana’s vision for local participation is being upheld as promise by H.E. Nana Akufo-Addo.
“I entreat the good people of Ghana to exercise patience and cooperate as we solve the outstanding issues surrounding our power system once and for all”, he pleaded.
