ECG explains what you need to do to enjoy govt’s discount on electricity

Story by Carlos Afanou

The Electricity Company of Ghana Limited has advised all Ghanaians to either swipe or insert their cards into their prepaid meters before going out to top up.

According to the Electricity Company of Ghana Limited, this will make it easy for them to collate data about the total consumption of the user so to implement the government’s discount as announced by the president during his sixth nation’s address on COVID-19.
“We’ve decided on further measures of mitigation for all Ghanaians for the next three months, i.e April, May and June. Government will fully absorb electricity bills for the poorest of the poor, i.e, for all consumers. That is free electricity for persons who consume from 0-50 kilowatt-hours a month for this period,” he said in his speech.

Even though the president promised to roll out the discount fro April 2020 the  Electricity Company of Ghana Limited started in May.

We are however not told why the shift was not made.
