The Northern Electricity Distribution Company Ltd (NEDCo) has announced that it will undertake a general revenue mobilisation exercise across its operational areas effective Tuesday, April 18, 2023.
The exercise is expected to last for more than a month, and it hopes to collect about Gh¢500 million out of Gh¢1.27 billion owed by customers.
According to a statement issued by the power distribution company, the exercise would cover all categories of customers in arrears, including State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs), Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs).
NEDCo is responsible for power distribution in Sunyani, Techiman, Tamale, Wa, Bolgatanga and Oti.
NEDCo said special security arrangements would be put in place to arrest and prosecute anyone who interfered with the exercise.
“Any persons identified to be engaged in illegal connections or reconnections will equally be dealt with by the law.
“We wish to further notify the general public that recalcitrant customers who have refused to redeem their indebtedness to the company after they have been served with Demand Notices will be arraigned before Court.
“Customers in arrears are entreated to pay their bills immediately to avoid disconnection and payment of reconnection fees.
“NEDCo urges all to cooperate for this exercise to be successful, bearing in mind that we can only serve you well when you pay your bills,” the statement concluded.
