Kenya launches Africa’s biggest wind farm

“The turbines, scattered across Turkana’s stark lunar landscape and rocky hills, began to deliver their first electricity last September. Today, their giant blades deliver 15 percent of Kenya’s entire installed capacity, connected to the national grid through a 428-kilometre power line. “Today, we again raise the bar for the continent as we unveil the single largest wind farm,” said President Uhuru Kenyatta, after touring the project. “Kenya is without a doubt on course to become a world leader in renewable energy.”

Although it took almost a decade to complete, the Turkana Corridor wind farm project is already supplying 1/5 of Kenya’s energy needs. Who’s next?
