Stima Plaza, Kenya Power’s Head Office, has launched multi-million solar power project in an attempt to cut costs and ensure that operations are not affected by power cuts.
Speaking during the commissioning of the project that is being done by a Chinese contractor, Kenya Power CEO said that Solar Power was part of their long-term solution to regular blackouts that affect their operations at the head office.
“Yesterday we were not issuing tokens because the system was down, something that was caused by power failure. This is the second time this is happening and we are losing millions. We need some reliable power.”
Kenya Power now joins several other companies that have resulted to solar power in order to cut costs and ensure reliable supply of power. This even more important considering that Kenyans complain too hard when Kenya Power systems are down, because they cannot buy tokens.
