A 1.68 kilowatt peak solar power plant has been inaugurated to augment electricity supply to the Prampram Polyclinic.
It consists of a solar panel, an inverter and back-up batteries.
A joint initiative of the Prampram Polyclinic and Volta (Formerly Novaya Solar), a California-based company, the plant is designed to provide reliable and affordable power to urban and rural communities in Ghana.

A visit to a small hospital in northern Ghana changed Mahama Nyankamawu’s life forever. “It was dark, they had no electricity and the medicines they had had all gone bad,” recalled the 40-year-old, who went to the hospital after a car accident in 2014.
The experience inspired Nyankamawu to create Volta, a company that builds solar power projects for health clinics, schools and farms across Ghana.
