The Ministry of Energy has noted reports that it had suffered a disconnection exercise last Tuesday from its agency, the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), over unpaid electricity bills.
The Ministry describes the report as false disclosing that the Energy Ministry facility runs on prepaid meters.
Clarifying the matter, Communications Specialist at the Ministry, Kofi Abrefa Afena said at no point has the Ministry been disconnected from the grid.
“The Ministry only had prepaid payment challenges and therefore called the ECG to intervene”, he asserted.
He continued; “The Ministry of Energy as the supervising agency of the ECG will support ECG in recovering all its monies accruing from energy sold to consumers. The Ministry will lead by example in paying for its energy consumed.”
The Ministry, according to Mr. Afena, is urging energy users to pay their bills to enable ECG and NEDCo provide essential services to consumers.
