ECG's Meters

The Electricity Company of Ghana has accused politicians of supplying thousands of metres into the system without the knowledge of the ECG.

This according to the power provider has made it impossible to properly measure and collect revenue commensurate with the consumption of those customers.

ECG revealed that  over 24,000 meters have been supplied  under bizarre circumstances into the system.

That number almost doubled to 44,000 in 2015 without the knowledge of the ECG.

This was revealed by the Ashanti Regional Public Relations Manager of the ECG, Erasmus Kyei-Baidoo, who was addressing a forum to sensitize the DCE, Coordinating Directors and Accountants of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies in Kumasi.

Erasmus Kyei-Baidoo said “Most of the meters were found to have been distributed by Members of Parliament (MPs) and assembly members as part of their promise during the campaign season to extend power to the people.”

A practice which is causing gross financial loss to Electricity Company of Ghana, according to him.

The Electricity Company of Ghana has come under sustained scrutiny for service delivery in the past month on grounds of widespread overbilling and unstable power supply.

This new revelation just feeds into the ensuing controversy.
