ECG Disconnects Electricity Supply to Parliament Over GH¢23 Million Debt

Parliament House and Job 600 faced a temporary disconnection of electricity supply on February 29, 2024. This action was executed by the National Taskforce of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) due to an outstanding debt of GH¢23 million.

Despite attempts to settle the arrears, the disconnection aligns with the ECG’s ongoing “Operation Zero Balance” initiative. The interruption lasted nearly three minutes before power was restored through a generator, as reported by Citi News.

In response to the situation, the ECG announced plans to conduct a nationwide meter audit from February to December 2024. This audit will scrutinize both post-paid and prepaid meters for integrity.

The ECG emphasized in a statement that any attempts to physically prevent or frustrate ECG teams from assessing assigned meters will result in service disconnection. The company aims to enhance confidence in its billing system, ensuring that consumption readings align with those recorded by ECG agents. This initiative aims to generate accurate bills and collect outstanding arrears from customers.

Customers are advised to verify the identification cards of ECG personnel during visits to prevent encounters with imposters and maintain credibility in the billing process.
