My biggest business is reducing ECG losses, not fixing "dumsor," according to the ECG CEO Featured

Samuel Dubik Masubir Mahama, the newly appointed managing director of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), has stated that his post is not intended to address the nation's "dumor" or power shortages.
On Starr Chat on Wednesday, Mr. Mahama told Nana Aba Anamoah that his administration couldn't buy electricity from independent power suppliers and give it away for free. "I join ECG at a time when income mobilization is crucial. You genuinely don't comprehend the work of ECG if you look at me now and think that my position as an ECG MD is to answer the dumsor mystery. "ECG is a distributor of electricity and obtains its supply from a private or public power generator. The official ones are VRA and Bui. You have independent power producers like SEND Power and KARL Power ship ASA, he continued. "We run the power that we acquire through a power purchase agreement through GRIDco to our bulk power supply and sub-stations," he explained. I must therefore compensate GRIDCo for sending the power to me. Additionally, I am responsible for paying other power producers as well as independent ones. The MD claims that there is a significant loss when power is sent to final users, adding that some communities disagree with rectifying that. "I have a loss of roughly 28% when I am distributing, therefore to correct that I decided to launch a revenue mobilization and revenue protection campaign," he continued.
