Power issues were quite interesting, given that we are currently in force. Kenya, on the other hand, took a big step and launched a wind power plant that will generate 310 MW of electricity (no small feat).


The recently launched Wind Turkana Wind Power (LTWP) plant in Marsabit County is Europe's largest wind farm and 365 wind turbines have the capacity to deliver 850 kilowatts.

Kenyan Electricity Transmission Company (KETRACO) said the country would save $ 9.675 million a year on imports of fuels used to produce electricity. This is not the first renewable energy project in Kenya, as nearly 70% of the country's electricity comes from renewable sources such as hydroelectric power and geothermal energy – more than three times the world average.


Today, we raised the bar for the continent by revealing the only wind farm in Africa.

Kenya is undoubtedly on its way to be a world leader in renewable energy.
