Electrification of Miawani Village
The Nexans Foundation will provide support for KITE's project to extend the low-voltage distribution grid network from Kwaakokrom to Miawani, a rural community near Antoakrom in the Amansie West District of the Ashanti Region in Ghana. Miawani currently lacks access to modern electricity, and approximately 100 households reside in this agrarian community. The primary objective of the project is to provide these households with their first-ever access to modern energy services through grid extension. As part of the project, 40 wooden poles and accessories, along with a 100 KVA Pole Mounted Transformer (PMT), will be installed to facilitate the grid extension.
