In a bid to bolster their financial stability and ensure the efficient delivery of electricity services, the Voltage River Authority (VRA) and the Northern Electricity Distribution Company (NEDCo) have jointly declared the month of October, 2023 as their dedicated “Revenue Mobilization Month.”
This announcement comes as part of a strategic effort to recover outstanding debts owed to the authority by their customers.
The Motivation Behind the Campaign
With the ever-increasing demand for electricity across Ghana, VRA and NEDCo have been facing mounting financial challenges.
Unsettled accounts and unpaid bills have put a significant strain on their ability to maintain and enhance the national grid.
In response to this pressing issue, both organizations have taken a proactive stance, declaring October as the month to prioritize revenue collection and financial stability.
The Revenue Mobilization Exercise
Central to this campaign is a comprehensive revenue mobilization exercise. VRA and NEDCo will leave no stone unturned in their quest to recover the monies owed to them by their customers.
One of the most prominent measures of this exercise is the disconnection of electricity supply to all individuals, businesses and institutions with outstanding bills.
The Impact on Defaulting Customers
For customers who have fallen behind on their payments, this announcement serves as a stark warning. Those who do not settle their outstanding bills risk having their electricity supply disconnected.
This measure is not only a necessity to recover funds but also to ensure a fair and equitable distribution of electricity resources to all.
A Call to Action for Customers
To avoid any inconvenience and disruption of their electricity supply, VRA and NEDCo have issued a strong advisory to all customers with outstanding bills. They urge these customers to take immediate action and settle their debts promptly. By doing so, customers can not only prevent disconnection but also contribute to the overall stability and reliability of the national grid.
The joint declaration of October as the “Revenue Mobilization Month” by VRA and NEDCo underscores their commitment to financial sustainability and efficient service delivery. As they embark on this crucial campaign, they hope that their valued customers will heed the call to action, ensuring that electricity services continue to power the nation while overdue debts are cleared. In this collective effort, Ghana can look forward to a brighter and more electrified future.
