The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) in the Western Region has commenced a project to extend electricity supply to Whindo, a suburb of Takoradi.
Whindo, one of the fastest growing suburbs in Takoradi has seen a lot of residential developments in recent times.
However, due to the unavailability of a standard LV Network in the area, many people have resorted to illegal connections which invariably put lives and properties at risk.
The project therefore seeks to extend supply to the newly built residential facilities and also improve the existing network.ECG Whindo1
