Today marks 5 years since we began generating and supplying electricity to the Kenyan national grid. Our 365 Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs) and high voltage substation continue to power our wind plant which has generated over 7.5 billion kWh to date.
To effectively deliver on our mandate, we have adopted best practices in wind energy production and invested in technology that supports peak plant performance. Favorable wind speeds have helped us record high capacity factors through which we have managed to effectively and consistently generate energy equivalent to 14% of Kenya’s installed capacity.
Further, in line with our commitment to urgent climate action, we have mitigated 680,000 tCO2e carbon emissions per annum and helped Kenya reduce the use of fuel imports in energy production, which translates to over EUR 453M savings in the country’s cost of energy.
LTWP believes in sustainable development and we remain committed to delivering value to Kenya through clean energy. We are proud to be the largest windfarm in SSA and are pleased to contribute to Kenya’s mission to be 100% powered by renewable energy sources by 2030.
