Bui Power explores wind power plant in Anloga

The Bui Power Authority (BPA) is exploring the possibility of building a wind energy plant in Anloga in the Volta Region.

This follows a recent study which established that the Anloga District has the highest wind speed capable of generating electricity for the national grid.

“In view of this, BPA will explore to develop this God-given wind resource in the district,” the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of BPA, Samuel Kofi Dzamesi, said.

He disclosed this prior to the inauguration of a GH¢1 million one-storey six-unit classroom block built by BPA for the Anloga-Avete D/A Basic School last Friday.

Mr Dzamesi said the wind energy project would make the district self-sufficient in terms of electricity, and generate jobs on a large scale for the youth.

He explained that the BPA had the mandate to develop all renewable energy resources, including wind energy.

For that matter, he said the authority attached utmost importance to the plan to construct the power plant in Anloga as soon as possible.

Mr Dzamesi reiterated that the Volta Region was dear to BPA as it was home to the Tsatsadu Generating Station, Ghana’s pioneering 45 kilowwatts micro hydro generating station at Alavanyo, which was built with local expertise and engineers.

“Education is the cornerstone of sustainable development, and at BPA we believe every child deserves access to quality education in a friendly learning environment,” he added

He said the classroom infrastructure was a worthy investment in the future of Anloga and was in line with the corporate social responsibility of BPA, with bright prospects of empowering the next generation for development.
