ECG worried about illegal electricity connections

THE ELECTRICITY Company of Ghana (ECG) has expressed worry over illegal power connection which continues to affect its revenue generation.

According to the Accra West Regional President of the Power Queens Club (PQC) of the ECG, Mrs Keisha Mensah, the company could generate GH₵ 800 million from credit metres and GH₵ one billion from prepaid metres.

Mrs Mensah said these on the sidelines of a blood donation exercise organised by her outfit for students of Accra High School in Accra on Tuesday, as part of the 30th anniversary of the club.

She cautioned customers who collaborated with some electricians to tamper with metres to ‘steal’ electricity.

“Customers think they are outwitting the company, but soon the long arm of the law will catch up with them, and they will be in trouble,” Mrs Mensah stated.

She said that though it was difficult to identify specific electricians who engaged in such illegal activities, the company was confident its monitoring officers would apprehend culprits and they would be brought to book.

Mrs Mensah asked customers to report challenges they face to the nearest ECG office.

The national president of the Power Queens Club, Mrs Rosemond Asamoah-Frimpong, said her outfit targeted the students because they had the capacity to donate more blood.
