Ghana Signs $69.88 Million Renewable Energy Deal to Enhance Electricity Access

By Evans Effah

About 1,350 schools and 500 health centers would also benefit from the project, which would include the design, engineering, supply, construction, installation, testing, and commissioning of mini-grids and standalone systems.

Seventy communities across nine Island districts through mini-grids, 505 communities in 11 districts through standalone solar photovoltaic (PV) systems in the country.

The “Scaling-up renewable energy Programme (SREP),” is to close Ghana’s 12.8 percent electricity reach deficit by increasing access to clean and reliable energy and supporting socio-economic development.
