The president just ended a tour of the Central Region yesterday, October 20, 2021. Within that tour, he commissioned a number of factories that have been completed as part of the One District, One Factory programme.
Just yesterday, he commissioned the Pokuase Bulk Supply Point, a 330/34.5 kilo-volt substation designed to improve the supply and distribution of electricity for consumers in the northern areas of Accra.
Funded by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) to the tune of US$47 million, the Supply Point, according to the President, is testimony to Government’s commitment to improving the electricity supply in the country.
Commissioning the project, the president stated that the Pokuase Bulk Supply Point, whose construction commenced in February 2019, “is also the fourth Bulk Supply Point in Accra. It is the first 330kV Bulk Supply Point in the capital, and it is the most technologically advanced substation in Ghana”.
