The Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi (ESCOM) Limited is reminding its valued customers that it has revised charges that customers have to pay for contravening terms and conditions of electricity supply. The offences include tampering with ESCOM electricity equipment, un authorised additional load and connection, among others. The charges aim to correct the situation, deter would-be offenders, improve quality of electricity, minimise injury and loss of life as well as damage to electrical equipment or appliances.
ESCOM has extended, until 31st January 2019, a waiver for any of the charges to customers who shall voluntarily declare any tampering or illegal extension of electricity supply at their premises.
