VRA is currently a state-owned wholesale power generation company with 1,866 MW of installed capacity. Until 2006, VRA was a generation and transmission company but in December, 2006 the Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) was carved out of VRA as an autonomous state-owned electric transmission utility as part of a larger power sector restructuring effort to functionally separate wholesale power generation and transmission. VRA is still a state-owned company, but now a generation-only company and it is not affiliated with GRIDCo. VRA is currently the largest generation owner by installed and operable MW capacity.
