Kwame Donkor, the Ghanaian Minister of Energy, called on the population to adopt the various solutions offered by solar in terms of energy. According to him, this type of energy will allow an efficient and faster resolution of the energy crisis which the country is currently facing.
The call was made during a visit to the country’s first assembly plant for solar panels. 84% completed and slated to enter service by September, the 10 MW capacity installation will reduce the cost of the panels, making them more accessible to the public. Donkor said he is very proud of the fact that the plant is owned by a Ghanaian company.
The minister also said that the government is working on an energy policy that will allow greater involvement of the private sector, especially local in the solar energy sector.
