ECG obtains GH3million from delinquent customers

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) Revenue Mobilization Taskforce has recovered almost GH3 million from electricity defaulters in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis.

The collection is part of a two-week revenue mobilization effort to reclaim $3.8 million owed by clients.

Benjamin Quarcoo, the ECG's Western Region Communications Officer, rated the first day of the exercise as a success.

"It was a success. As we've seen, some consumers were able to pay GH1 million, while others paid GH700,000 with the anticipation that by the end of the exercise, a lot more would come in to pay what they owed the ECG.

He went on to say that the task force made certain that consumers who couldn't pay off all of their obligations covered at least half of what they owed ECG.

Meanwhile, consumers were given a payment plan to follow to pay off all of their obligations and keep their businesses running.

The crew disconnected those who did not make a partial payment or agree to a payment schedule.

While warning prospective ECG customers not to fall prey to bad nuts inside the organization, John Quayson-Dadzie, Western Regional Acting Manager of the Electricity Company, said that prospective customers should avoid payment for promised temporary meters or seek receipt for all payments.

As part of the operation, the ECG team obtained over a million cedis from Takoradi Technical University and an undisclosed quantity from Anaji Shopping.
