Abstract

The paper investigates the long-run relationship between government activities and electricity consumption using annual data collected from world development indicator for a period of 1971 to 2011 in Ghana. The paper adopts the autoregressive distributed lag model of co integration for the estimation. The estimation reveals both short run and long-run relationships between government expenditure and electricity consumption. The findings suggest that government activities explain electricity consumption in Ghana for the period under discussion, and could be considered as a policy variable in the management of electricity consumption.
