Ghana Mini Grid And Solar Pv Net Metering - Project Appraisal Report
The Ghana Scaling-Up Renewable Energy Program (SREP) Mini grid and Net metering with Solar PV project involves the development of 35 mini grids in the Volta Lake region and the deployment of 12,000 units of roof-mounted net-metered solar PV systems for public institutions, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and selected households within the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) and Northern Electricity Distribution Company (NEDCO) networks. The project will also involve the deployment of up to 11,000 stand-alone solar home systems within the lakeside and island communities of Ghana. The project will contribute 13.5% of renewable energy to the Ghana energy mix excluding hydropower and create up to 2,865 jobs during the construction phase of which 30% will target women and youth. The project is also expected to mitigate greenhouse emissions of 0.7185 million tons of CO2 – equivalent through generation of renewable energy estimated at 111MWh annually.
