ECG proposes a tariff increase.

The Managing Director of the company, Kwame Agyeman-Budu said the proposal will only materialize after approval from the Public Utilities and Regulatory Commission (PURC) Currently, lifeline consumers who are rated as poor and low-income earners pay GHS16 for the power consumed and extra GHS2.13 as service charge, making it a total of about GHS18. Former ranking member of Parliament’s Mines and Energy committee, Mutawakilu Adam has hit against the scheme, emphasising that the ECG has not shown efficiency in its operations to warrant an increase in tariffs.
