ECG Celebrates 50years. +++ 50 Years of Powering the Socio-Economic Growth and Development of Ghana


For Immediate Release 

Following the announcement of a planned shut down by the Ghana National Gas Company (GNGC) for maintenance and also to allow for the connection and commissioning of the gas pipeline system and other equipment from the TEN fields to the Atuabo processing plant from 3 rd to 20th February, 2017, we wish to advise that there will be a generation shortfall of 230MW from the AMERI plant whose operations depend solely on gas supply from the GNGC

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.


ECG at 50
