$700,000 Solar Project in Ghana to be Implemented

Ghana is to receive some 100 mega watts of power in 2017 to help ease the power challenges confronting the country.

It follows the award of a $704,815 grant by the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) to Ghanaian solar power developer, Home Energy Africa Limited.

The grant will also offer technical assistance for the generation of the 100-megawatt solar power to feed the national grid.

The photovoltaic (PV) project which is near financial closure is situated in the village of Nyimbale-Sankana, in the Upper West Region of Ghana.
