ECG Proposes 148% Increase In Electricity Tariff



If the government does not subsidize electricity tariffs, consumers will face astronomical increases in light bills beginning in August 2022, as the Electricity Company of Ghana demands a 148 percent increase in tariff.

According to a proposal submitted to the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC) by the power distributor, the adjustment should be made between 2019 and 2022.

The ECG has since proposed an average tariff increase of 7.6 percent over the next four years to cover Distribution Service Charges (DSC).

The high increase in the Distribution Service Charges was attributed by ECG to the gap that has developed over the years between the actual cost recovery tariff and the PURC approved tariffs, as well as the cost of completed projects.

It also mentioned the continued application of the current tariff (which was 14 percent lower) beyond the regulatory period, as well as the impact of macroeconomic factors such as inflation and exchange rate fluctuation.

“The result of ECG’s tariff proposal for the next five years shows an approximately 148% increase on the current DSC1 in 2022 and an average 7.6 percent year on year increase from 2023 to 2026.” The high increase in the DSC1 for 2022 could be attributed to the years-long gap between the actual cost recovery tariff and the PURC-approved tariffs, as well as the cost of completed projects.”

“Similarly, ECG’s proposed DSC2 shows a higher increase of 28.4 percent in the first year (2022), with subsequent years’ increases increasing by an average of 2 percent from 2022 to 2026,” it added.

The power distributor reiterated that financial sustainability is critical because it affects the entire energy sector.

“The financial sustainability of the Electricity Company of Ghana is critical because it has ramifications for the entire energy sector.” With the distribution industry facing massive investment needs over the next five years, it is expected that the proposed tariff increases will be approved in order to maintain efficient and reliable electricity service.”

“Over the next five years, the DSC will need to rise steadily (at a rate of 7.6 percent on average) to cover distribution costs.” The approved BGC is expected to correspond with the commercial terms of PPAs (Power Plant Agreements),” it added.

ECG proposes a streetlight tariff that includes full cost recovery.

The ECG, on the other hand, suggested working with the PURC to determine the defined threshold for a lower tariff for non-residential or commercial customers.

The company also wants the government to help it implement a streetlight tariff so that it can properly account for the full cost of streetlight consumption.

16 May 2022


It is with great concern that we bring the following to your attention. We have noticed that some of our learners are acting strangely and out of character.

We learned that some of them came into contact with a terrible webpage called: Chucky’s Cheese Restaurant.

Here children interact with a demonic doll. At first, it is very entertaining and friendly, but after a while, the doll indoctrinates them, dares them and threatens them if they do not do certain things.

Daring them includes: strangle a friend, kill a teacher, burn your house, etc.

Chucky Cheese Restaurant was recently replaced by FNAF- Five Nights at Freddy, which is even worse.

These sites are already active in Namibia.

We urge you to please control what your child is watching on your phone, their own phone, tablets, laptops, etc.

We, as parents, are thinking they are playing an innocent game, but it is NOT. They are dared to even kill.

Please also inform your friends and other family members of this. Please contact our school Counselor with any enquiries or comments. tours faithfully.

Kwaku Bonsam ‘Curses’ President Akufo-Addo, This Is What He Said



Nana Kwaku Bonsam, a celebrity fetish priest, has expressed Ghanaians’ collective frustration with President Nana Akufo-Addo.

According to him, President Akufo-Addo will go to hell for deceiving Ghanaians and failing the people.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam said on Angel FM, where he pronounced the curses, that Akufo-Addo has failed to deliver on his promises to Ghanaians and is thus a sure candidate for Hell.

“You mentioned that we have the money yet are hungry. But now that you’ve joined the government, we’re even more hungry. We can’t afford to live comfortably, and our girlfriends are deserting us because we can’t afford to keep up,” he explained.

“The bible talks about lies, and the President lied, thus he will go to hell,” the fetish priest believes the President’s lies will send him to hell.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam expressed concern that Ghanaians were living in abject poverty, which had been exacerbated by poor governance and economic hardship.

As a result, he has placed the blame squarely on the shoulders of President Akufo-Addo, who he claims has failed to capitalize on the country’s resources in order to push Ghana to become a prosperous nation.
