Press Releases

The Electricity Company of Ghana's attention has been drawn to a false alarm circulating on social media, to the effect that, some devices have been installed on ECG poles and are meant to freeze the easy flow of cellphone network during the election period. +++ +++ The ECG wishes to state categorically that this information is FALSE. +++ +++ The communication devices installed on the ECG poles in areas such as; Dodowa, Roman Ridge, Legon, Prampram etc. are meant purposely to facilitate smooth flow of communication between the prepaid meters (NURI prepaid meters) on the field and our server. +++ +++ The general public is therefore being advised to ignore this false alarm. +++ Thank you.

Good morning ladies and gentlemen of the media,

The Electricity Company of Ghana called this press briefing to explain the recent distribution challenges and assure our customers and the general public that the outlook for the future is bright according to our suppliers, and that we have also strengthened our distribution system enough to ensure we deliver quality, reliable and safe electricity services to our customers.

The attention of the ECG has been drawn to a load shedding timetable purportedly drawn and issued to the general public by an unknown person(s). The ECG wishes to state categorically that it has not issued any such load shedding timetable since the national load shedding committee chaired by Ing. William Amuna- CEO of GRIDCo, has not advised ECG on any such schedule. The general public and all stakeholders are advised to ignore the supposed load shedding timetable currently in the public domain.


The Electricity Company of Ghana has taken note of various complaints from our customers and stakeholders regarding our meters and billing. The meters installed to bill and calculate customers’ consumption go through rigorous standardisation and calibration processes according to approved national and international procedures. ECG has a modern metering laboratory facility comparable to any in the world to test the meters to ensure they meet all the standards before installation.

The Electricity Company of Ghana Limited wishes to inform the general public that its attention has been drawn to the video circulating on social media about two technicians involved in an accident whilst working on electricity distribution network.

The Electricity Company of Ghana Limited wishes to inform its valued customers and the general public that, although we are working tirelessly to strengthen and maintain a robust distribution network, rainstorms and stormy winds may bring down electrical conductors or electrical wires to the ground, or may cause some of them to sag dangerously close to the ground, thereby causing power outages.



The Electricity Company of Ghana Limited wishes to bring to the notice of the general public that electricity distribution poles are being covered with posters, thus denying the Company’s customers access to vital information, inscribed in RED on these poles.
