Phase one of the Hiowe Mahe-Shai Solar Power Plant shall soon commence construction in the Shai-Osudoku District of Greater Accra Region of Ghana. The initial phase of 20MW is scheduled to reach a Commercial Operation Date (COD) in January 2020. The Plant is designed to generate 91 gigawatt hours of electric power annually when the full 60MW Capacity is completed. The Plant output will be fed directly onto the national electric grid.
The project is in line with the Government commitment to generating clean and affordable energy to power the national industrialization policy. The siting of the Plant will have the additional benefit of becoming a magnet for businesses to locate and create jobs for the community.
