ECG disconnects power to KIA, UPSA, others over debt

Source The Ghana Report

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has disconnected the Kotoka International Airport (KIA), Accra Sports Stadium and the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), from the national grid for failing to pay accumulated bills.

The disconnection exercise was undertaken by a national task force of the ECG in the wee hours of Tuesday, November 1, 2022, after the institutions failed to pay their indebtedness to the power distribution company.

In April this year, the three key institutions were disconnected after all attempts by the power distributor to retrieve its debts owed over two years failed.

The Ghana Airport Company Limited, on its part, immediately issued a GH¢10 million cheque to settle part of GH¢39 million debt.

ECG says it will proceed to reconnect the Kotoka International Airport. However, it will ensure the company sticks to a planned payment schedule.

The University of Professional Studies, on the other hand, indicated that the government is expected to settle its legacy debt.

The management of ECG is currently on a move to recover all debts owed by defaulters as well as clamping down on persons and institutions who have connected to power illegally.

In September 2022, the ECG revenue task force disconnected the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) from the national grid over a GH¢6.1 million debt.

The task force was ordered to take the national broadcaster from the national power grid for its failure to show commitment toward paying its debt that has lasted for months.
