A New Breeze Blows Clean Air Across Kenya.

There's an exciting article in i09.com about a new company called Lake Turkana Wind Power. According to the company's web site, they are "poised to provide 300 MW of clean power to Kenya's national electricity grid by taking advantage of a unique wind resource in Northwest Kenya near Lake Turkana. Using the latest wind turbine technology LTWP will provide reliable and continuous clean power to satisfy up to 17% of Kenya's planned total installed power upon commissioning in 2012." Let's hope some of this electricity will get to Kibera. In any case though, it's innovative ideas like this that will catapult Kenya into the 21st Century, maybe ahead of some Western nations, stuck with iron age concepts of non-renewable sources of energy.
