ENERGY COMMISSION OF GHANA VISITS ADA SOLAR CORPORATE OFFICE

In compliance with new regulations of the Energy Commission to visit and inspect offices of all investors in the renewable energy sector, a team from the Energy Commission visited the corporate office of ADA SOLAR ENERGY LIMITED in Accra, Ghana.

The Team led by Mr. Carlos Jerry Yawson (APO, Renewables) was received by the Country Director of ADA SOLAR ENERGY LIMITED, Mr. Deji Akinade who expressed delight at the new approach of the Energy Commission at having a more robust relationship and interactions with investors in the sector. He enjoined the team to impress it on the Board and Management of the Energy Commission that there is the need for the commission to give more support to investors in ensuring that their investment do not come to a waste or become unduly delayed due to lack of institutional support from the Commission who arguably are the first point of contact for investors in renewables in Ghana.

The team from the Energy Commission commended the Management of ADA SOLAR for the milestones already achieved on the ADA project and for putting up a befitting office for the project. They assured of the continuous support for the project going forward.
