KenGen set to launch mega hydropower project

According to KenGen Managing Director and CEO, Eng. Peter Njenga, beyond its economic impact, the project aligns with Kenya's commitment to clean energy and bolsters its efforts to achieve the 100% clean energy targets outlined in the global climate action agenda. "The Cabinet's approval of the Gogo Hydropower Redevelopment Project is a momentous milestone for the people of Western Kenya and a testament to the government's commitment to regional development," said Eng. Njenga. "This project not only signifies progress in the energy sector, but also holds the promise of economic growth, job creation and improved livelihoods for our communities while contributing to our clean energy goals," he added. The approval issued during a Cabinet meeting, chaired President William Ruto at State Lodge, Kisumu is expected to rejuvenate the reliability of power supply, while stimulating socio-economic activities across the entire Nyanza and Western Kenya Regions.https://www.citizen.digital/business/boost-for-western-kenya-as-kengen-to-set-up-gogo-hydropower-project-following-cabinet-approval-n329133

    I really hope the local's interests were taken into account. We have seen it time and time again where people were not involved in such projects and its never a pleasant situation. And the wildlife as well. However this a good project, all factors considered.

                commendable step towards achieving Kenya's clean energy goals and aligning with the global climate action agenda. Beyond its economic impact, this project holds the promise of bolstering clean energy targets, fostering regional development, and improving the lives of local communities. It's encouraging to see that the government's commitment to clean energy extends to projects like this, emphasizing the importance of sustainability and a reduced carbon footprint. The initiative not only enhances the reliability of power supply but also stimulates socio-economic activities, which will undoubtedly benefit Nyanza and Western Kenya Regions. Projects like Gogo Hydropower are essential in the fight against climate change, showcasing the country's dedication to a greener and more environmentally responsible future. It's a significant step in the right direction, and I hope it sets an example for similar endeavors worldwide. 🌍🌿🌟 #ClimateChange #CleanEnergy #Sustainability
