The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has blamed recent power outages on massive rainstorms as well as stormy winds.

The power house, in a public statement said although they are working to ensure efficient distribution, windy storms continue to wreck their operations.

“We are working tirelessly to strengthen and maintain a robust distribution network, massive rainstorms and stormy winds, usually cause the falling of trees, billboards, ripped roofing etc on our electrical conductors, resulting in major outages”.

The electricity company further says major outages caused by transient tripping on feeders are restored immediately after rainstorms.

For permanent faults that hit the feeders, ECG says it takes a while to be fixed by engineers.
