SourThe sod has been cut for work to begin on the first phase of the largest power bulk supply point (BSP) at Pokuase in the Greater Accra Region.
Estimated at $33.5 million, the project, which is the first 330 kilovolts (KV) bulk supply point in Accra, will significantly improve the quality of power supply to the northern part of Accra.
Upon completion by the end of March 2021, areas such as Pokuase, Kwabenya, Legon, Nsawam and other surrounding communities will have reliable power supply.
The construction of the BSP is being funded by the United States (US) government through the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) under the $498.2 million Ghana Power Compact, popularly known as Compact Two and implemented by the Millennium Development Authority (MiDA)
The ceremony was jointly performed by the Chief of Staff, Mrs Akosua Frema Osei Opare; the Ambassador of the United States of America (USA) to Ghana, Ms Stephanie Sullivan, and the Vice-President for Compact Operations at the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), Mr Anthony Welcher, at Pokuase, near Accra yesterday.
