Critical Commentary

This artifact suggests that producing energy through renewable sources especially solar and wind is the choicest option for the private sector to produce and commercialize energy using the distributed model. This model is used to describe the setting where equipment for power generation using renewable sources are installed at the place of use. It emphasizes that instead of investing in the installation of a coal-based thermal plant to generate power, it would be more profitable for the Ghanaian government to invest in a renewable energy source like solar energy. This stance was made due to the fact that with respect to factors like capacity, environmental impact, technological growth, job creation opportunities, resource, project duration, overall initial cost and maintenance, investing in coal fell short when compared to solar energy.
