Abanga Abdul, a student of the Ghana Senior High School in Tamale has created a model house to demonstrate his proposed solution to the erratic power supply in the country.
In a video report sighted by YEN.com.gh on the Instagram handle of Facts and Truths, the young man indicated that he created the model house with cardboard, DC motor, wire and LED bulb.
Abdul explained that overdependence on the hydroelectric power supply is the main cause of the power challenges as the demand for the supply is extreme.

However, with alternative power generating methods, the demand for the hydroelectric power supply would be greatly reduced and complemented.
The model Abanga Abdul proposed employs windmills as the alternative source of power generation for households.
He indicated that this method is highly efficient, renewable, and cost-effective as the only charges the users would incur are the capital to procure the equipment and maintenance costs once a while.
This, Abdul explains, is far better than the current system where Ghanaians have to pay bills to have power almost every month.
Meanwhile, Bridget Bonnie, a young Ghanaian philanthropist who was the first female SRC president at the Wisconsin International University has used the occasion of her 30th birthday to launch a new commitment to help street children.
Information available to YEN.com.gh indicates that the project is dubbed The PEC Project which represents Personal, Educational, and Career developments for underprivileged children.
The launching was held in a colourful ceremony at the Bayview Village event centre at Madina Atomic Junction on April 11, 2021, by Dr Kofi Kusi Osei who is also a philanthropist as well as a consultant.
