The Electricity Company of Ghana has announced that it has not increased its bills by 17.5% as recent reports have said.
This follows a social media publication on Wednesday which stated that the ECG has increased Electricity bills after the 3-month 50% tax waiver.
In a press release issued by ECG, it refuted the claims and asked the general public to disband it.
“the ECG wishes to inform its cherished customers and the general public that the PURC who is mandated by law to set tariffs has not informed ECG of any increase in tariff, neither has the ECG received notice from the Government of Ghana of new or increased taxes to be applied to the current electricity tariff structure,” the statement said.
Meanwhile, the Government issued a 3-month waiver on tariffs to help make life easy for the general public amidst COVID-19.
The president made the announcement while addressing the nation on the COVID-19 cases three months ago.
