Kenya to be First in Africa with Solar-Powered Farm

Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (Kari) is looking to create a solar-powered facility that aims to have the first “green” farm in Africa using renewable energy.

The farm, set to come online in June, will use solar power to operate over 100 acres of land at Kari Muguga. The facility began trial tests with a new greenhouse technology acquired from the South Korean government and will coincide with the newly created Africa Carbon Exchange facility.

Alternative Energy Africa is trying to reduce its own carbon footprint in 2011. Ask about our electronic subscriptions and online marketing campaigns specially tailored for individual companies.
