ECG to disconnect 91 Hospitals over GH₵261m debt soon

The National Taskforce of Ghana’s Electricity Company is preparing to disconnect 91 hospitals from the national grid due to unpaid arrears owed to the distributor.

The health establishments around the country owe a total of GHc261 million.

According to information received by Citi News from the ECG, several health facilities would experience power outages 48 hours after receiving a “demand notice.”

Notable hospitals at risk of disconnection include Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, the 37 Military Hospital, Ridge Hospital in the Greater Accra region, Komfo Anokye and Manhyia Government Hospitals in the Ashanti region, Ho Teaching Hospital in the Volta region, and Kibi Government Hospital in the Eastern region.

This measure is part of the ECG’s overall endeavor to reclaim funds owing by customers in order to improve its operational capacities.
