Another huge energy development project hits Kaleo and Lawra in the Upper West region

The current president together with the ruling party has chopped a lot of successes in almost all the sectors of the country. The energy sector is no different when it comes to development. Since 2017 the government has paid the huge debt that plunged the country into dumsor.

The assurance given to the people of Ghana was to end the energy crisis, due to the huge debt that was not paid by the then NDC government, which collapsed all industries in the country. In addition to ending the power crisis, efforts have been made to increase the energy generation capacity of the country.

As it is wiser to diversify the sources of energy for the country, the government is constructing a 17MW solar farm in Kaleo and Lawra in the upper west region.

In a facebook post shared by Aboagye Kofi Maxwell, According to the president, "this project reaffirms the commitment of his government to diversify the country's energy generation portfolio, and thereby, help increase the renewable energy component of Ghana's energy mix, and contribute to her fight against the effects of climate change. With the solar project coming on the heels of construction of the Pwalugu Multipurpose Dam and Irrigation Project, the 17 megawatt project is being funded by the German government's Bank, KfW at a cost of €22.8 million.
