“The transformer is the most expensive component in our network and the value for the damaged transformer at Adaklu Tsrefe by these suspects is GHs104,000 minus labour and other expenses which we have to replace at our own cost and this affects our operations as well as our financial health. This new transformer could have been sent to communities without power supply or even extend power to other areas”, she revealed.
Ms. Jatoe-Kaleo urged the general public to be vigilant and help protect ECG installations in their communities, homes and towns.
“Lately people are even stealing the earth wires at our substations and service cables of our customers which normally result in prolong outages so let’s all come together to fight this menace. If you see anyone suspicious working at any ECG substation or facility, kindly report to the nearest police station or ECG via 0302611611”, she said.
Ms. Jatoe-Kaleo assured the general public of the company’s commitment to deliver on its mandate. Myjoy
