The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) is starting a statewide revenue mobilization effort today to collect all unpaid bills from its consumers, totaling GH5.7 billion.

The effort, which will last a month, targets consumers at home, as well as companies, organizations, government ministries, departments, and state agencies for power used between February of this year and February of 2022.

The ECG said last week that from March 20 to April 20, 2023, it would begin a revenue mobilization exercise to recover all debts owing by all customer categories, including state-owned firms (SOEs).

As a result, the business was temporarily closing all of its administrative offices in order to send employees out into the field to serve as collectors for the duration of the one-month term.

To serve clients, however, engineers, technical personnel, operations, and customer care divisions must be on the job.

According to a copy of the task force members’ deployment plan that was given to the Daily Graphic, the exercise will be conducted in each district under the direction of the appropriate managers.
