Oserian enhances carbon-free footprint, launches new solar power plant in Kenya

Flower exporter, Oserian Development Company has launched its solar energy power plant with a capacity to generate 1mw. Integrated with the existing geothermal power, the firm will now produce sufficient renewable energy for consumption by tenants and residents of the Two Lakes Industrial Park. Speaking during the launch in Naivasha, managing director Neil Heilings said renewable energy was the way to go to reduce the cost of power, a big hurdle to Kenya's development. "The initiative supports Kenya's Agenda 4 - providing cheaper renewable energy for industrial take-off."
