On June 1, 2010, the Electricity Corporation of Ghana raised its rates dramatically. It was the first increase since 2004! Non-residential rates were increased over a whopping 100%. Before June 1, each unit over the first 600 costs 0.195 p. After June 1 each unit over the first 600 costs 0.450 p, representing an increase of 130.77%! In short, travellers to Ghana might expect large discrepancies between advertised rates such as those you will find in guides or on brochures and those quoted at reception. Phone ahead to get the revised rate.
