ECG starts mass separation to recover obligations

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has served notice that it will start a cross country separation practice in a bid to recover extraordinary obligations owed by customers. 

The mass separation exercise will begin on Monday, April 12, 2021, because of high obligation. 

"The Electricity Company of Ghana Limited wishes to educate its treasured clients and the overall population that it will continue its typical income assembly practice successful 12 April 2021," it said. 

The ECG's activity is coming at a period when the Managing Director of ECG, Kwame Agyeman-Budu has proposed an expansion in levy to help the organization's operational exercises. 

As indicated by him, ECG needs more assets to work appropriately and adequately. 

The Managing Director of the organization believed he knows that the proposition will just emerge after endorsement from the Public Utilities and Regulatory Commission (PURC). 

"We need cash to do it [improve]. On the off chance that we get the increment we will cherish it [but] that will be up to the PURC on the grounds that, regardless of what we propose, they will at last choose. 

"As far as appropriation, we need support, since we need to do moves up to ensure the framework is practical. We don't stand by till something is broken before we fix it. We need extra assets to redesign our frameworks consistently," he added. 

Presently, help shoppers who are delegated poor and low-pay workers pay GH¢16 for the force devoured and an extra GH¢2.13 as administration charge, making it a sum of about GH¢18. 

In the mean time, the previous Member of Parliament for Damongo, Adam Mutawakilu has expressed that the proposed tax increment by the ECG is unsuitable. 

He said the ECG has not shown its ability to deal with its assets consequently there is no legitimization to build duty. 

In a meeting on Accra-based Citi FM, he said "What amount of our monies are being lost? Assuming that isn't handled, we are squandering our energy on this. They are simply taking cash from Ghanaians and squandering it.

Specialized and business misfortunes alone are more than 25% and that implies that for each 100 million that ECG is relied upon to gather, they can't represent 25 million of it. So in the event that we just focus on expanding tax without lessening specialized and business misfortunes, we will return to the starting point."
