200,000 KENYANS TO BENEFIT FROM WIND-GENERATED ELECTRICITY

Kathmandu, August 12 (CNS) -- More than 200,000 Kenyans living in marginalized areas far from the national electricity grid are set to benefit from cheap wind-generated electricity in four years’ time.



This will come courtesy of the "Wind for prosperity project" initiated by the Danish government which will target 13 marginalized areas of the country.

About 68 per cent of Kenyans still do not have electricity connections, a problem blamed on low generation capacity.

The wind energy project will be financed in part by the 18 billion shillings (about 204.7 million US dollars) funding from the Danish government.

The Kenyan government is working on a programme to double electricity connections in three years to utilize the enhanced generation capacity.

The first installations to the wind power project are expected late this year with efforts currently underway to identify areas with huge potential for wind energy in the country. Source KBC
