It starts with a vision

In order to achieve the level of economic growth anticipated in Kenya's Vision 2030, the country needs to develop additional and cost-effective energy generating resources. Historically, Kenya has been reliant on hydropower. However increasing climate variability, especially more droughts has brought into question the reliability of hydropower alone.

Melec PowerGen with Thika Power Ltd had a vision to contribute towards answering the power and energy challenges facing Kenya, by adding stable and affordable energy to the grid.
