6MW project is anticipated to improve energy access for more than 175,000 people in the foothills of Mount Kenya.

This 6MW project is located on the Rupingazi River in a rural part of Embu County on the south-eastern slopes of Mount Kenya.

Utilising REPP’s development loan, the developer has been able to make progress on the development of the project and the construction of both the plant’s weir and canal.

The power plant will supply offtaker Kenya Power under the terms of a signed 20-year power purchase agreement.
