Welcome to the Volta River Authority
The Volta River Authority (VRA) was established on April 26, 1961 under the Volta River Development Act, Act 46 of the Republic of Ghana, as a body corporate with the mandate to generate, transmit and distribute electricity. In 2005, following the promulgation of a major amendment to the VRA Act in the context of the Ghana Government Power Sector Reforms, the VRA's mandate has now been largely restricted to generation of electricity. The amendment has the key function of creating the enabling environment to attract independent power producers (IPPs) onto the Ghana energy market.

Energy Conservation Tip
Unplug all the appliances that you are not using regularly - even chargers continue to use electricity when they are not charging.
