“The Meter Management System (MMS) for the Electricity Company of Ghana will help address the issue of power theft by some customers, provide quality real-time data availability to assist the company account for electricity purchased and inform ECG about the leakages in the system and how to address them,” these were words by the Deputy Energy Minister, Hon. Andrew Egyapa Mercer at the launch of the (MMS).
