          Having independently owned solar power stations in South Africa diversifies the energy landscape, promotes competition, and encourages innovation. However, state-run projects ensure equitable access, prioritize public interest, and foster long-term sustainability for the nation's energy needs. The state needs to have more of such projects too

              @joseph_githinji it is imperative to continuously invest in green energy and diversify out energy portfolio from fossil based power to clean energy that is freely available for us all to tap into.

                  @george_kariuki And other renewable energy sources too including wind and hydro power. It is important to have a diverse energy base to ensure power supply is uninterrupted even during different weather conditions.
