Having had hydro as the main supply of electricity in the country, Ghana has gone a step further to look for other sources of power that could help boost the economy of the country. Having had a big hydro electric system, Ghana decided to change it into a thermal supply in the year 2010 and gas became the main source of power since then.

Introduction of the generation of electricity from the renewable energy sources like the solar, wind, biomass and small hydro took place and everything changed abruptly.
