The general public has been promised by the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC) that it will ensure utility service providers supply quality services at a fair price.

The Commission had previously approved an increase in water and power rates for the second quarter of 2023.

On June 1, the new water rates go into effect.

The commission claimed that in making this choice, it considered the cost of power, rising volume costs of chemicals used in the treatment of raw water, the exchange rate between the Ghana Cedi and the US Dollar, and inflation.

The PURC stated that it “is appreciative of the participation and feedback from all stakeholders in the tariff approval process.

According to a statement released on May 18th, “The Commission will continue to monitor the operations of the utility service providers to ensure value for money and quality service delivery.”

According to a separate announcement from the Commission, regarding power rates, “The review has resulted in the Commission approving tariff increases for natural gas and electricity for the second quarter of 2023.”
