According to the Executive Secretary, the Commission has adopted these steps to ensure that, only prudent and efficient costs are passed on to consumers of the regulated utilities, while sustaining the financial viability of the utilities.
Dr. Ackah assured consumers of the Commission’s commitment to having a transparent and fair process, which will inure to the benefit of both consumers and the regulated utilities.
He indicated that, a new date for the announcement of electricity and water tariffs would be communicated to the public as soon as these issues have been addressed.
