Stand Alone Solar (SAS) Market Update: Ghana


The COVID-19 pandemic has slowed the progress made in recent years to increase access to affordable and reliable electricity in Ghana. The health crisis has forced the government to shift its immediate priorities to emergency measures, including pledging USD100 million to the COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan and other response measures. This reprioritisation is within the context of a shortfall in petroleum receipts, import duties and tax revenues, which has reduced available financing to expand and improve electricity infrastructure. Other concerns may be due to the cost of the preparedness plan itself, and the Coronavirus Alleviation Programme which will cost the economy about GH₵ 9.5 billion (USD1.62 billion).
