ECG disconnects power to Accra Academy over GH¢400K debt

According to the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), Accra Academy Senior High School’s GH¢400,000 outstanding debt caused its disconnect from the power grid.

After the disconnect, on Monday, February 19, there was a power outage at the school.

Some on-campus teachers also experienced disconnection, according to a teacher who asked to remain anonymous. Crucially, the instructor made it clear that the school is not directly in charge of paying the bill and that they are not aware of the precise amount that is owing to the electricity provider.

Paul Agraga, the head of prosecution at ECG, clarified that the disconnection is a component of an ongoing strategy to recover unpaid invoices to the corporation in an interview with Bernard Avle on the Citi Breakfast Show on Citi FM.

“Normally, we have a team that goes around once a while to inform our customers of their debts so they do not accumulate and so if you take Accra Academy for example, they owe in excess of GH¢400,000 to the ECG.”

He further explained and dismissed allegations that the ECG is deliberately targeting the school and stressed that the company also owes its partners which it has to pay.

“We did not specifically target Accra Academy, it is an ongoing operation we are conducting, and a number of homes, businesses, and institutions have also suffered the same fate.

“The no-free consumption does not discriminate at all and once you owe, you will be disconnected. It does not matter whether it is Parliament or a security service because we also owe people that we have to pay.”
