This was the assurance given by the vice president, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia when he delivered the Keynote Address at the Fourth Ghana Renewable Energy Fair organised by the Energy Commission in Accra today, 9th October 2018.

Dr. Bawumia assured participants to the fair of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s government’s commitment to promoting the usage of renewable energy powered mini-grid systems to provide electricity to communities which are too far from the existing national grid.
