Ghana’s renewable energy feed-in tariff programme was adopted via the 2011 Renewable Energy Act which seeks to increase renewable energy from 0.01% of current electricity generation to over 10% by 2020. Solar PV is expected to contribute 20MW to the energy mix by 2015.
The FiT came into force on 1 September 2013 after being approved the previous month. The FiT available for solar is GHS0.43/kWh (US$0.20), the highest of any renewable energy form. Rates will be valid for 10 years, but subject to review every two.
