|Our mission is to procure and distribute electricity efficiently, safely, and reliably in the northern sector of Ghana in a commercially viable manner. NED started with an initial load of about 10MW with a customer population of about 12,000. The Network has grown extensively over the years mainly as a result of the various Electrification programs particularly the Self Help Electrification Programs (SHEP) implemented by the Government of Ghana with support from World Bank and other international donor agencies.
Before the power sector reforms began in Ghana in the 80s, the then Electricity Corporation of Ghana (ECG) was responsible for the distribution of power in the whole of the country. In 1987, the Northern Electricity Department (NED) of the VRA was established to distribute electricity to Brong-Ahafo, Northern, Upper East and Upper West Regions of Ghana.
