Customers of ECG have been affected by unannounced outages for some weeks now, causing   a lot of uneasiness.  Many customers have turned to social media to vent their anger and frustration.

Responding to the numerous complaints by customers, the General Manager/Public Relations at ECG, Mr. William Boateng indicated that ECG has been affected by Generation challenges in the country. This means that ECG, the state distributor  for six regions in Ghana,  does not get enough power from its generators to supply to customers.
