ECG to reinstall prepaid meters in Kroboland

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has reached an agreement with all stakeholders of Kroboland to reinstall prepaid meters. This exercise commenced on Tuesday, June 14.

The Company announced that the meters are free so customers should not be deceived into paying any monies for acquiring a meter. The Electricity Company has agreed to ring-fence the debts of 2014 to 2017.

“The debt of 2018 to 2021 is to be paid over a five-year period,” ECG added in its announcement. Customers are expected to, however, pay all 2022 bills in full, going forward.

The people of Kroboland have been assured that, the new meters will have no debts on them. Anyone who needs additional meters would have to apply to request for them at the ECG office.

ECG appealed to its customers in Kroboland to collaborate for smooth implementation of the prepaid meter project.

Background
There has been no love lost between ECG and Krobos as agitations and protests have led to attacks on offices of the former while a young man, Thomas Partey, lost his life. This even forced the Company to shut its offices in 2021 and relocate to Juapong in the Volta Region.

“Our doors will always be opened, and when reason prevails, and the Management of Tema region are convinced that the environment that we have left is safe and harmonious for us to directly operate in these communities, we will not hesitate to give them our approval,” the Company said while packing out of Somanya.
