Wind Production in Kenya Surpasses Thermal Generation

Wind energy has surpassed thermal generation in Kenya, signalling the end of era of high cost of electricity due to the reliance of diesel-power generation of energy.

Electricity from wind farms increased to 139.17 million KWh in November 2018 compared to 7.13M KWh during the same period the previous year, a 1,952 per cent spike.

Thermal power generation has dropped to 80.15M KWh during the same period under review, a 48 per cent decrease from 153.10M KWh in November 2017, according to data released by Kenya Power.

The findings from the electricity distributor also shows that geothermal is the biggest source of power, accounting 397.58M KWh followed by hydro at 340.07M KWh.

This comes at a time when wind power has gained traction in the various parts of Kenya led by Lake Turkana Wind Power which has been projected to produce 300 MW of power followed by Kipeto Energy with a generation capacity of 100MW power.
