The government has announced plans to provide universal access to electricity by 2030.
It intends to use solar energy to bridge the 15 per cent gap in the provision of electricity across the country.
The Minister of Energy, Mr John Peter Amewu, announced this in Accra yesterday in a speech read on his behalf at a validation workshop on the findings of off-grid solar market assessment in the country.
He indicated that rural and peri-urban Ghana were the targets for the electrification programme.
In a boost to attain that dream, the minister said, Ghana had been selected among 19 African countries in West Africa and the Sahel to benefit from a $265-million facility to increase access to electricity by rural folks.
The project will kick-start simultaneously in beneficiary countries from January 2020.
