The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has announced that it will undertake planned maintenance works to improve service delivery in some areas in the Greater Accra Region.
In a public notice, the ECG said the exercise on Wednesday, December 21, 2022, will start from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Some of the areas to be affected include; Sege, Inglisi, Kasseh, Big Ada, Ada Foah, Totope, Moon Light Farms, and Dawhenya.
According to the ECG, other areas to be affected are; Abbeykope, Adotey, Ghanaman Socer Academy, Porter’s City, Noble Estates, Prampram township, Kpi Ete
The ECG “regrets any inconvenience that will arise out of this exercise”
Meanwhile, the Public Utility Regulatory Commission (PURC) will be announcing its quarterly tariff adjustment later his week.
PURC adjusts tariffs to reflect changes in macroeconomic variables such as inflation and exchange rate.
The review will therefore see an upward or downward adjustment.
“The cedi’s rate against the dollar and inflation are some of the factors we try to correct using the quarterly tariff adjustments. We should be expecting an announcement before the close of 2022 because it is supposed to take effect from the 1st of January,” the Head of Research and Cooperate Affairs at the PURC, Dr. Eric Obutey said in an interview.
