Background
• ECOWAS the 15 Member States have determined
that the provision of affordable electricity supply
to consumers and industry can more easily be
achieved by interconnecting the electricity
networks of countries in the region
• To this end, the West African Power Pool (WAPP)
was established in 1999
• The Bolgatanga (Ghana) – Ouagadougou (Burkina
Faso) electricity interconnection is one of WAPPs
priority interconnection projects.
• WAPP Secretariat, on behalf of the VRA of Ghana
and SONABEL of Burkina Faso, is coordinating the
implementation of the 225 kV Bolgatanga (Ghana)
– Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) interconnection
project to permit the exportation of cheaper
power to Burkina Faso from Ghana
