This week, the Electricity Company of Ghana Limited (ECG) will continue the process of revenue mobilization that it has been working on.
The Keta Municipal Health Directorate and the Ho Airport Cape Coast Stadium are just two of the organizations that ECG has already taken on as clients.
Additionally, the exercise compelled both public and private institutions to cough up some funds to settle outstanding debt in order to avoid being disconnected from their respective services.
For example, the amount owed by Parliament to the power distributor was reduced by eight million cedis after it reached a settlement.
Additionally, out of a total debt of 1.4 million cedis, the University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS) has made a payment of one million cedis.
After the public demonstration of their intention to pay off their debts, neither of the institutions’ connections to the national grid were severed.
Samuel Masubir Mahama, the Managing Director of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), has urged customers with post-paid meters to pay their outstanding balances at any of the company’s offices located throughout the country rather than waiting for the company to send out bills for the amount of power that was used.
