Ghana’s power sector has gone through several structural changes since independence. Many of these changes are aimed at expanding and improving the delivery of electricity to consumers. The paper assesses the regulations and reforms introduced over the years in the electricity sector and how they have affected the electricity market. Policy documents and literature, detailing key reforms in the power sector have been reviewed along three key aspects; legal, economic and technical. The legal aspect of the market reform discusses the key laws and policy framework in the sector whilst the economic and technical aspects discusses tariff regimes and power supply specifications. The findings suggest a significant successes in some of the implemented reforms, whilst others face serious implementation challenges. The paper concludes with recommendation for addressing the challenges with implementation of policies and programs in the sector
