Ghana Power Compact - Line Bifurcation
MCC’s $316 million Ghana Power Compact (2016–2022) funded the $220 million Electicity Company of Ghana (ECG) Financial and Operational Turnaround Projec (EFOT) to improve the quality and reliability of electricity through reduced outages and cost-effective service delivery by ECG. The Technical Loss Reduction Activity within the EFOT Project includes investments in low voltage (LV) line bifurcation (LB) and network improvements in Accra, Ghana to reduce low voltage circuit lengths and ensure length does not impact quality of service or exceed a technical loss threshold. The LB intervention involves injecting new transformers in the LV network, “bifurcating” existing LV lines. These activities supported the theory that targeted infrastructure investments would reduce the duration and frequency of outages for households and enterprises in Ghana.
