Kumasi: Electricity Bills killing us – Private mortuaries

By on

147691197796_2610202986746Owners of private mortuaries in Kumasi have revealed that they are being shoved out of business following high electricity tariffs.

They indicate the skyrocketing electricity bills are now gradually leading to most of them closing down their facilities since they are unable to meet the rising cost of operations.

According to them, the cost of running their cold facilities is shooting through the roof threatening their operations despite consistent complaints to the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).

Their complaints come in the wake of a general public outcry over the new billing software of the Electricity Company which has currently been put on hold.

The high end electricity consuming private mortuaries are calling for a speedy solution to the anomalies to save their businesses from collapse. A pathologist from one of the private Mortuaries, who spoke on anonymity Ultimate FM’s Eno Safo appealed to government to speed up processes in rectifying the anomaly in ECG’s billing

Meanwhile the electricity company is set to return before the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) to give further clarity on issues of its new billing software and concerns of overbilling customers.
