Single Wind Farm to Produce 30% of Kenya’s Energy

Single Wind Farm to Produce 30% of Kenya’s Energy

A new wind farm is being built in Kenya that will be large enough to produce a full 30% of the country’s energy needs. Kenya has experienced a growing demand for power with an average increase of 8% per year.

The Kenyan wind farm will produce 300 megawatts of power and is a private venture which is seeing about 30% of the cost coming from the African Development Bank.

This adoption of wind energy and other forms of renewable energy in Kenya and throughout Africa is great to see since it offers hope that Africans will bypass the whole stage of dirty power and get right into renewable forms like geothermal power plants and wind and solar energy.
