Abanga Abdul Karim Ibrahim, a student at Ghana Senior High School in Temale and a member of the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Club, has built a system that generates electricity using wind rather than hydroelectric power.
The unit is built to look like a home and is powered by a windmill to generate electricity. The turbine spins as the wind blows, generating current that can be used to power one's home. So, whether you have hydroelectric power or not, you have electricity in your home.
In a video, Abanga Abdul Karim Ibrahim explained that the current power outages in Ghana, which are dubbed "Dumsor," inspired him to create this machine.
He claims that if we have many windmills running most of Ghana's homes, the pressure on the national grid will be reduced, and power production in our homes will increase, putting an end to the Dumsor issue.
He added that Ghana should not depend solely on hydroelectric power generation, but should make a windmill a priority because it uses air and air is free.
