The Northern Electricity Distribution Company (NEDCo) has concluded its month-long mass revenue mobilization exercise. The debt recovery effort, which commenced at the beginning of October throughout the entire NEDCo operational area, aimed to retrieve revenue owed to the company.
When Madam Alimata Bamie, Customer Services at VRA/NeDCo in the Upper East Region, spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show, she indicated that 8 million cedis out of the 165 million cedis debt had been raised from debtors.
“We have concluded the one-month-long mobilization exercise. That is not to say that because we have mobilized what we need, we have stopped. It is a continuous service, and we will continue to provide service to customers. As long as customers continue to use electricity, they will continue to pay for it, and we will continue to mobilize revenue.”
“We were not able to mobilize what we were targeting, but all in all, we give thanks to God. For some organizations, we have been able to draw up a payment plan with them so the revenue will trickle in from now until they finish paying. We were able to mobilize almost GHC 8 million,” she said.
Meanwhile, Madam Bamie explained that a weekly revenue mobilization exercise would be carried out by the organization until such a time when all debts owed to the electricity distribution company are collected.
“We will only disconnect customers who have received their bills within 14 days and have not paid and those who have scheduled a payment plan and do not adhere to it. Those are the ones we will be disconnecting,” she added.
