The US Embassy says ECG Has Not Billed Them For 2 years

The US Embassy has broken its silence on its indebtedness to the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), saying it has not been billed for the past two years.

In a tweet on Monday, the Embassy said it has been chasing the power distributor to submit the bill for payment but this has not been done.

The Embassy’s tweet follows comments by Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko about the balance sheet of ECG during an interaction with journalists and officials of Millennium Development Authority (MiDA). This was at the inauguration of a 7-member ECG PSP Stakeholders’ Committee in Accra.

The Minister said the debt stock of Ghana’s power distributor is increasing by the day due to inefficiency.

Mr Agyarko added the inability of ECG to improve its balance sheets is because it has failed to collect debts owed it by entities such as the US Embassy and telecom giant MTN.
