ECG installs prepaid meters at MDAs

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has begun the installation of prepaid meters at the various ministries, departments and agencies.

This follows a directive by president Mahama to the ECG to install prepaid meters at MDAs and bungalows of government appointees.

Speaking to Joy News, the Public Relations Officer of the ECG, William Boateng noted that the process is almost complete.

"I know that so far 16 MDAs have been covered in Accra. We have cover almost 90% and we are left with few, where the load is above the prepaid meter ratings", he intimated.

Meanwhile, addressing managers of electricity in other West African countries at a conference in Accra, the Divisional Manager in charge of Revenue Protection at ECG, David Asamoah indicated that it has prosecuted eight persons for theft of electric power.

This comes at a time the company is finding new measures to minimize system losses in production.
