As part of the Energy Sector Reform programme, the Northern Electricity Department (NED) of the Volta River Authority established in April 1987 was renamed the  Northern Electricity Distribution Company (NEDCo) with the official appointment of a Managing Director in June 2011.  NED as it was originally called was established when the Northern Electricity Distribution operations of the then Electricity Corporation of Ghana were ceded to the Volta River Authority (VRA), at the time of extending the national grid beyond Kumasi to the northern parts of Ghana. The Volta River Development (Amendment) Law, 1987 (PNDCL 171) was passed to enable VRA to enter the distribution market at the level of the consumer.

At the time of the inception, some major towns including Sunyani, Techiman, Berekum, Wenchi, Dormaa Ahenkro, Tamale, Yendi, Salaga, Bolgatanga, Navrongo, Bawku and Wa were served by diesel generators. New diesel plants were installed in Wa through the support of DANIDA in 1989. DANIDA also supported the complete rehabilitation of the distribution network in Wa  in 1992. NED was originally started with three operational Areas namely Upper Area, Northern Area and Brong-Ahafo Area. In 1995 however the Upper Area was divided into Upper East and Upper West Areas. In 2003, the Brong-Ahafo Area was also further divided into two areas, Sunyani and Techiman. Currently, NEDCo, has five operational areas with the head office in Tamale. The operations of NED currently cover about 64% of the geographical area of Ghana including all of the Northern, Brong-Ahafo, Upper East and Upper West Regions and the northern parts of Volta and Ashanti Regions.

Currently, NEDCo has customer population of over 315,000 most of who are in the domestic class.
