ECG Charges To Go Up Today
The Energy Company of Ghana (ECG) is scheduled to impose new rates on electricity consumers on Tuesday, February 1, 2022.
According to an internal EGC memo, the corporation will charge GH1, 020.00 for a single-phase meter, up from the current GH400.00.
According to the circular, the “new service connection prices” are all VAT/NHIL inclusive and have been approved by the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC).
It’s unclear why all stakeholders have remained silent on the fees, as if hoping to catch consumers off guard.
The only free item on the new list is a meter replacement for both 1-phase and 3-phase.
Customers who want a three-phase meter for the first time will have to pay GH1,920 instead of the current GH700.
A single-pole single-phase extension now costs $2,920, while a three-phase extension costs $4,420.00.
A two-pole extension will set you back $4,520.00.
The list includes straight service with pole, separate meter, post SHEP straight, and additional load.
The single-phase temporary power supply costs GHC800, while the three-phase temporary power supply costs GHC1,500.00.
