The Electricity Company of Ghana Limited has urged customers who purchase electricity with prepaid cards to do well to either swipe or insert their cards into their meters before visiting vending points or ECG offices to purchase credit.
This is to enable the power distributor gather accurate consumption data to ensure a smooth implementation of the government’s COVID-19 electricity relief, a statement by ECG said.
Meanwhile government’s relief package would reflect as follows:
Lifeline customers shall have 100% relief of their consumption for the months of April, May, and June, 2020.
All other customers shall receive 50% of their March, 2020 consumption for the months of April, May, and June 2020.
April benefits will be realised in May, May benefits in June, and June benefits in July.
The Energy Relief Package was announced by President Akufo-Addo as part of the interventions introduced by the government to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on people and businesses.
