Kakamega: Residents urged to mind the environment

21 June 2012, 11:44 Dennis Ochande

Kakamega county residents have been urged to use energy saving and environmental friendly appliances in their homes.

Speaking to KNA in her office today, Community Action on Environment and Development (CAED) acting manager Rose Amam said, “It is good to dwell on this type of energy to reduce tree cutting and environment pollution.”

With her business that is only seven months old, Amam has been able to import energy saving equipment for use at home. Among them, is a cooking solar set which has the ability to cook light food in 45 minutes.

She stated that, foods prepared by this equipment are clean since no ash is produced when cooking which can contaminate the food.

The major beneficiaries of this project are women groups in the region who are given free training on how to make and use these equipments.

Amam said that, most of her customers are Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs), who buy the equipment and donate them to women groups, but she also registers sales from a few individuals.

Complains from her customers that the equipment are expensive is her major challenge in the business.

The organization also undertakes biogas construction. It is currently constructing biogas at Mamboleo slaughter house in Kisumu and at Malava Children’s home at a lower cost.

She advices residents owning two or more cows to construct biogas in their homes or residents to form groups of 100 people and construct biogas to be used for lighting and cooking.
