A 12,000-Pound Solar Power Project, initiated by the management of Radio Peace, a? Station based in Winneba, has been commissioned.

It is the first Community Radio Station in the country to have adopted such useful energy system to buttress its desire to provide cherished listeners nationwide with credible and uninterrupted service.

Commissioning the project at a grand durbar at Winneba on Wednesday, Mr. David Ghartey-Tagoe, former Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC), and Chief Advisor to the Management of Radio Peace, commended foreign donors who contributed funds to support the implementation of the project.

According to Mr. Ghartey-Tagoe, the Solar Power supply facility is an automatic change over, that monitors Solar Power and the National Grid (ECG) and affords Solar Power for the station to operate 24 hours non-stop, only by changing over to ECG in times of inadequate sunshine.

He mentioned the Federal Ministry for Economic and Development (FMED) of Germany, via North-South Foundation and Bridges for Environment and Development (NSFBED), via the Environmental Lottery BINGO and the community Radio Partners, LHORO in Rostock, Germany, as the organizations which provided funds for the successful execution of the project.

Mr. Ghartey-Tagoe said the acquisition of the Solar Power supply system for the station is particularly an important gain now, considering the erratic electricity supply system in the country?.

?We can now generate our own source of electricity through Solar Panels potentially enabling us to be on air even during ECG outages? The Chief Advisor added.?

He was full of praise for NAIKO Engineering Company based in Accra which installed the solar system for the excellent service it provided.
