  • The Lake Turkana wind power project, hailed as the largest wind farm on the continent with a capacity of 310.25 megawatts, was officially commissioned by President Uhuru Kenyatta in Marsabit County. The project which was connected to the national grid in September last year provides nearly a fifth of the country's energy needs. The 28 billion shillings project is expected to reduce the cost of production in the country as it is considered cheaper than other power generating means.
