EPC has been providing electricity supply to industrial and commercial customers within the Free Zones Enclave in Tema since the year 2000, initially offering these services as part of the services rendered to customers by the International Land Development Company (ILDC) and since 2009 as EPC. Currently, EPC supplies electricity to over 50 customers within its operational area and this number is expected to exceed 80 within the next 2 years with a number of new companies at various stages of construction of their plants. Customers of EPC include renowned multi-national blue-chip companies like Cargill Ghana and Barry Callebaut, two of the world’s largest cocoa processing companies.

EPC purchases electricity from Volta River Authority (VRA). In the medium term, EPC would explore avenues of alternative supply from IPP’s such as Sunon Asogli and CENIT Energy.
