Summary

Kinangop is a 60.8 MW wind farm development comprising the construction, financing, operation and maintenance of a greenfield wind park located in the Kinangop region, about 60km northwest of Nairobi.

In an effort to address the growing demand for power in Kenya, Kinangop supports an ambitious Kenyan government initiative to increase generation capacity from the current 1.5GW to 5.6GW by 2022. Kinangop is expected to generate and supply renewable energy to the national grid, which will provide clean power to thousands of homes in Kenya under a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement with Kenya Power and Lighting Company (Kenya’s electricity distribution company).

Beyond its contribution to sustainable and environmentally-friendly electricity generation, Kinangop will be committed to creating job opportunities and socioeconomic development in its local communities.
