WIND FOR PROSPERITY KENYA HYBRID POWER PROJECT

The Project

The project will harness the wind resources at the various sites in order to reduce the reliance on fossil fuel in the isolated grids. The projects will operate as an IPP selling power to the KPLC operated isolated grids.

The project is in late-stages of development.
