Much of rural Kenya, like many rural regions of Africa, lacks access to reliable energy sources to full-fill people's needs. One innovative man, John Magiro Wangare, saw a sustainable, affordable solution to this problem and built a hydroelectric power plant from scratch. Magiro Power has been a great success and now powers over 250 households!
Could hydroelectric power plants, utilizing river or wave power, be the future of green energy for Africa? Building up on small-scale projects like this one could be a viable solution to meet a variety of needs. Should businesses and organizations invest in hydropower solutions to meet growing demand for renewable energy?
