PURC Confident ECG’s Board Members Will Settle GH¢5.8m Fine

The Public Utility Regulatory Commission (PURC) expresses confidence in the ability of Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) board members to settle the GH¢5.8 million fine imposed on them.

The fine was levied on Tuesday, April 16, by the PURC due to the board members’ failure to furnish a load-shedding timetable following a series of power outages between January and March 2024.

Director of Research and Corporate Affairs at the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission, Dr. Eric Kofi Obutey, remains optimistic about the ECG board members’ commitment to redeeming their reputation by paying the fine before the May 30 deadline.

“We see noble people, people who are law-abiding, people who speak to the issues as they are, and will be bold to abide by the rules of the game and maybe make the payment. But if that is not done, I am sure the commissioners will come up with a new strategy and that, when we get to that point, we will communicate that to the public.”
