The Volta River Authority (VRA) was established on April 26, 1961 under the Volta River Development Act, Act 46 of the Republic of Ghana, as a corporate body with the mandate to operate mainly as a power generation, transmission and distribution utility. In 2005, following the promulgation of a major amendment to the VRA Act in the context of the Ghana Government Power Sector Reforms, the VRA's mandate was revised and has now been largely restricted to generation of electricity. 
The transmission function has been hived off into a separate entity, designated National Grid Company [ GRIDCo ] to perform the transmission activities. In the transition process VRA has operationalized its distribution agency the Northern Electricity Department [NEDCo] as a subsidiary company.
