The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) Western Regional office has successfully acquired 40,000 electricity meters to cater to the needs of consumers in the region.
According to Mr Emmanuel Justice Ofori, the General Manager of ECG, these meters will be utilized for new service connections as well as replacements. Additionally, depending on available stock, some postpaid meters may be converted to prepaid meters before the end of 2023.
During a meeting with journalists in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan area, Mr Ofori urged the media to educate the public about the new ECG App, which enables consumers to electronically purchase and pay for ECG services.
Furthermore, the company has initiated the second phase of its debt collection exercise. Mr Ofori stated, “This time, we are going into household meters,” and advised postpaid users to settle their debts owed to the company.
Highlighting the need for funds to finance new projects and fulfil statutory obligations, Mr Ofori called on ECG service users to comply with payment terms.
In light of the rainy season, Engineer Ofori emphasized the importance of vigilance and prompt reporting of any fallen poles to prevent unforeseen accidents. He stated, “We need such emergency reporting of incidents promptly to enable us to respond in a timely manner.”
