ECG has come under a lot of flack for its operational losses  to theft and unredeemed debts by customers. One of the biggest defaulters of electricity bill  are governmental institutions and educational institutions.

The excercise  is also geared towards assuring investors in the power sector like Independent power producers that their investment will be safe, because the ECG who is the only off-taker will redeem its obligations by efficiently collecting all revenues from its customers.

Speaking on steps being taken to make the ECG more efficient, acting director of the company, Robert Dwamena says the company is determined to recover all monies owed it

" We  are embaking on strategies that will ensure that we are able to recover all monies due us.  We are committed to recovering all our revenue and not less than 10 per cent of our debts"

Mr. Dwamena also revealed how the excersice has gone one month on.

" We have started in Accra, Dodowa, Roman Ridge, Makola and Legon District, and we have raised about GHC2 million. So all who owe bills, and have done illegal connections must be careful."
