ECG, the Electricity Company of Ghana is to expand its pre-paid metering system to more rural communities in the Western Region.
The Western Regional Commercial Manager of ECG Mr. Alex Anwobor, who declared this at a media briefing in Takoradi, said the pre-paid metering was at present limited to Sekondi and Takoradi areas.
He added that the facility would be expanded to Tarkwa, Bogoso, Prestea, Elubo, Sefwi-Bekwai, Agona-Nkwanta, Bibiani and Sefwi-Wiawso.
He said, moreover the ECG also had plans of increasing revenue collection sale points.
Mr. Anwobor said the Company would influence on mobile telephony by discovering the opportunity of customers buying power through the mobile money transfer where customers could purchase pre-paid scratch cards at pharmacy shops and shopping malls.
He said the ECG management is also considering introducing emergency credits so that if one runs out of credit on the pre-paid metre, he/she can easily re-load credits at the comfort of his/her home or office.
He said the company aims to establish more customer and fault reporting centers across the region for timely response to electrical damages and faults to its installations.
He appealed to the media to publish pictures and names of culprits involved in illegal connections in their respective media outlets to serve as a deterrent to others.
He said illegal power connections; meter annoyance and cable thefts are the main causes of losses to the company.
