The power plant is to be developed at a site approximately 28 km from Eldoret town, 293 km from the Kenyan capital city of Nairobi.
The site is fairly levelled with minimal development, and a 220kV Turkwel-Lessos transmission line passes close to it
The project is planned to be implemented in three phases under the Feed in Tariff policy of the Ministry of Energy and Petroleum. The first phase will involve generation of 40MW, second phase will add another 40MW and the final phase will add 20MW with the total generated electricity being supplied to the national grid.
The initial Project investment is circa $80 million and will generate 40MW with the opportunity to invest a further $150 million to expand the PV park over the next 18 months.
