ECG To Pay Back Utility Hike Balances To Affected Customers By End Of Jan 2016

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has assured customers of its resolve to pay back balances by the end of January 2016 following the miscalculation of hikes in the utility tariff difference between 1st December and 13th December 2015.

In a statement to the public, the company admitted facing challenges regarding the implementation of the recent 59.2 percent tariff hike.

Meanwhile, the director of public affairs of the PURC, Nana Yaa Jantuah says  the reasons for the increment is to enhance consumer interest, investor interest, economic development of the country, generation mix, and availability of the service among others . The sudden hike in utility tarrifs is feared to have a negative impact on Ghana’s market sector as prices of goods and services are also more likely to hoot up in that regard.
