C/R: ECG bags GHS483K from illegal connections

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) in the Central Region has recovered GHS483,449.28 for the second-quarter of 2018 from illegal connections.

The Regional Revenue Protection Manager, Mr Kow Ampah told the media that the amount was realised as a result of customers who were surcharged for engaging in illegal connections.

He said the exercise was part of ECG’s routine check of customers’ premises to ensure that illegal connections are reduced to the barest minimum.

Mr Ampah further explained that during the period, a total of 4,678 metres were visited and screened in the Kasoa North and South Districts.

The outcome indicated that 202 residential and 78 commercial customers were involved in various forms of illegalities such as metre tampering, unauthorised service connections, metre by-passing, among others.

“The Company recovered 212,337kWh of energy during the period and this forms part of steps to reduce system losses,” he said.

The Regional General Manager of ECG, Ing. Dr. Kwabena Adomah, for his part, also said the ECG is on the look out to prosecute customers who engage in such illegal connections.

He added that customers should desist from transferring metres without ECG’s permission because of the adverse impact it has on the company.
