Cost of electricity to increase as ECG pushes for adjustment in tariffs

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has initiated plans to adjust its tariffs to increase the cost of electricity in the coming weeks.

According to a Director in the Office of the Managing Director, Noble Dorwume, a request has been tabled before the Public Utility Regulatory Commission (PURC) for consideration and approval.

At a meeting with the PURC in Tamale on Friday, he added that the review of the tariffs would be based on the classification of the Company’s customers.

“We have given an upward review based on the cost, inflation and other economic parameters.

“So, it will depend on how PURC looks at it and which group should have a slight adjustment, which one should have a downward review and will all give us revenue which will be able to help us run this business successfully,” he explained.

In August 2021, the Africa Centre for Energy Policy (ACEP) raised concerns over what it described as wastage within the power distribution company.
