The government of Ghana wants to use these projects to help bring electricity to people in the country who lack power. By 2016 Ghana hopes to have complete electricity access and by 2020 it wants 10% of its energy to be generated by renewable sources.
Ghana also wants to aid its renewable energy sector. The African Development Bank has given $53.5 million to help with this goal. This and the SREP are hoped to allow the renewable sector undertake projects on its own.
