Ghana Power Compact embarks on US$13.75 m Street Lighting Enhancement Project

The Ghana Power Compact is currently embarking on street lighting replacement works.

The project is being implemented by the Millennium Development Authority (MIDA).

The project involves improvements in the quality of lighting on a total of 532.68km of selected Streets in Accra and those leading in Aburi.

The works have been split into Tranche 1 (177.76km) and Tranche 2 (345.92km).

A total of 14, 287 energy-efficient and durable luminaries are being fitted to upgrade existing street lights or as new installations.

The Street Lighting Replacement Works come under the Energy Efficiency and Demand Side Management (EEDSM) Project of the Compact Program.

When fully completed, in April 2022, the project is expected to reduce electricity used for street lighting by 40%, reduce the cost burden on Assemblies and contribute to improved road safety and the security of road users at night.

The project is being funded under the Millennium Challenge Corporation of the USA.

The contract price is US$13.7 million and the beneficiary areas are Accra Central Business District (CBD), selected streets in Accra East, and Accra West.
