Mahama calls for crisis meeting over high electricity bills

President John Dramani Mahama has called for an emergency meeting to determine the cause of errors detected in the billing of power consumed by customers of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).

The meeting which is expected to come off on Thursday at the Flagstaff House, will bring together key players in the energy sector to discuss how best to address the anomaly, according to a report by kasapafmonline.com.

Among the stakeholders expected to be part of the meeting are the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC), ECG, Energy Commission, and the Ministry of Power.

The PURC has already ordered the ECG to suspend the implementation of its new billing software until further notice.

The commission said in a statement issued in Accra on Tuesday that after investigations into complaints by customers that they were paying more than the stipulated tariff for electricity, an anomaly in the initial implementation of the new billing software by the ECG had been discovered.
