Calculation of appropriate electricity tariffs for the regulatory authority in Ghana
Fichtner was commissioned by the Millennium Challenge Corporation to prepare a tariff study for the regulatory authority in Ghana as a basis for determining electricity tariffs and their future development (tariff development plan). The tariff development plan includes various measures that will enable participants in the electricity market in Ghana to fully recover their operating and capital costs via the tariffs in future. In addition, adequate protection of vulnerable groups will be considered in the tariff plan. Following elaboration of the new tariff structure and associated regulations, Fichtner is developing an implementation plan taking into account the various requirements of the process participants to ensure that the program receives the necessary political support.
