The Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) says the nationwide power outage experienced on Sunday is due to a technical fault on one of the major transmission lines between Prestea and Obuasi.

In its latest updates, GRIDCo in a press statement dated Monday explained that this issue with the Prestea-Obuasi transmission line led to “overloads on other adjacent transmission lines,” resulting in the “eventual power system shutdown in the country.”
