Commissioning of an SPIS under the PGE project


The Brew-Hammond Energy Centre (TBHEC), KNUST, has been contracted by GIZ to undertake consultancy services related to technical assessment and commissioning of 150 solar powered irrigation systems in Ghana, under the ‘People’s Green Energy (PGE)’ Project.

The PGE Project is a proposed country measure of a global project commissioned by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) with the main objective to improve conditions for supplying rural regions in selected African countries, including Ghana, with decentralised renewable energy systems. The project supports the adoption of modern energy through the introduction of alternative and sustainable renewable energy and energy efficient technologies with the participation of citizens and businesses. A key component of the country measure for Ghana focuses on the improvement
of access to decentralised renewable energy systems by providing solar irrigation systems
for farmers, enterprises active in rural areas, cooperatives and women's groups with the help
of fiscal incentives, called results-based financing (RBF).
Financial support upto 40% (or Euro 3,000) is available for beneficiaries who want to install SPIS on their farms. The financial support is given to farmers who are into animal or crop production. The Project period is from September 2021 to July 2022.
