Gradually, Ghana is beginning to have a kinda flourishing tech scene.
Of course, we are nowhere near Silicon Valley kind of environment, but we are making strides nonetheless.
The Ghanaian luxury car brand, Kantanka Automobile is an example.
Now, if he has his way, the founder of the Progressive People’s Party Dr Papa Kwesi Ndoum had his way, we wouldn’t have to import solar panels into the country.
According to him, his company, the Groupe Nduom has produced the first-ever locally assembled solar panel.
Papa Kwesi Ndoum has always been an advocate for renewable energy, since it is cheaper in the long term and also environmentally friendly than the current hydropower and thermal power we use in the country.
We cannot independently confirm whether Groupe Nduom plans to go into large-scale assembling of solar panels in Ghana – though it is most likely considering the investment he has made in the sector.
If so, then chances are buying solar panels could become a lot cheaper than it currently is.
