ECG Juapong District Warn Against Interference with Power Network As Transformer Burnout

The Juapong District of the Electricity Company of Ghana, located in the Tema Region, has issued a stern warning to the public regarding interference with the power distributor’s network, highlighting the potential risks posed to the company, customers, and the wider community.


This caution follows the discovery of a 200KVA transformer in the town of Asikuma within the district suffering a fuse burnout, identified on Saturday, May 18, 2024. It has been brought to light that unauthorized individuals, possibly non-company electricians, have been tampering with the distribution network, particularly during outages, in attempts to restore power supply. Such actions are considered perilous as these individuals lack knowledge of the specific network design for the area.
