Nairobi – President Mwai Kibaki on Monday unveiled the construction of the world’s most ambitious power project that will help ensure adequate power supply in the country, while reducing the cost of electricity.
The Olkaria 280 MegaWatt (MW) geothermal project will raise Kenya Electricity Generating Company’s (KenGen) total electricity capacity by 25 percent which President Kibaki noted will significantly raise geothermal contribution by the country’s largest power producer to help meet the power demand.
“I am happy to note that this project begins the shift from hydro based electricity to a geothermal based power future,” he said.
