The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) will begin a nationwide meter audit from next month, February 2024.
The audit is expected to last for the rest of the year.
“The Electricity Company of Ghana wishes to inform our cherished customers and the general public that it will undertake a Nationwide Meter Audit within ECG operational areas, effective 1st February till the end of the year, 2024.”
This will cover both prepaid and postpaid meters across the country, it said in a notice on January 29, 2024.
“This special exercise will entail a thorough inspection of the front and back of all postpaid and prepaid meters to authenticate the integrity of the meters within ECG operational areas.”
It referenced the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission’s LI 2413 (2020) and stated that it has the necessary mandate to access all meter installations, anywhere and at all times.
“Therefore, any attempt to physically prevent or deliberately frustrate ECG teams to assess your assigned meter will lead to the disconnection of the service to your house.”
It further advised customers to inspect the ID cards of ECG teams who visit their premises to avoid imposters.
