The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has reiterated its commitment to supplying quality, reliable and safe power supply to Ghanaians across its operating areas.

The power distribution company has since urged Ghanaians to be responsible by paying for electricity supply and report all forms of illegal power theft to the appropriate authorities.

General Manager of ECG for Accra West Region, Mr. Ebenezer Ghunney gave the assurance when the company commissioned a 200KVA transformer for the Ga West Municipal Hospital at Amasaman in the Greater Accra Region on Friday.

The installed transformer which cost GH¢200,000.00 is expected to provide reliable and adequate power supply to the hospital and its auxiliary healthcare services.

The Accra West ECG General Manager explained that the company decided to install the equipment at the Ga West Municipal Hospital due to years of complaints regarding the unreliability of power supply to the facility.

“Before today, this hospital used to be served from a public transformer and they often reported issues of power fluctuations, low voltage and frequent interruption of power supply to some critical units of the hospital, including the neonatal intensive care (NICU), theatre, emergency unit, the laboratory and the records (OPD),” he said.

He added: “The installation of this dedicated 200kVA transformer to the Ga West Municipal hospital is, therefore, a means of improving power supply and reliability to this facility, and in our own small way, ensure that the provision of healthcare to the people and patrons of this hospital is not jeopardized.”

He said the gesture formed part of the company’s corporate social responsibility to ensure healthcare facilities are well equipped to deliver on their mandate.
