Kenchic Joins Firms Choosing Solar To Cut Expensive Power Bills

Poultry company Kenchic has recently joined the growing list of firms in Kenya turning to solar energy to slash expensive power bills. The company says it has pumped $1 million (Sh160.5 million) into solar panels purchase that it says will reduce its power costs by up to 33 percent, as firms chop reliance on costly and unreliable supply from Kenya Power. During the official handover ceremony of the panels from energy solutions provider Chloride Exide at Kenchic’s meat processing plant in Thika, the latter’s managing director Jim Tozer stated that the switch would translate to annual savings of up to Sh25 million for the firm, meaning that the investment would be recouped in just four years https://www.businessdailyafrica.com/bd/corporate/companies/kenchic-joins-firms-choosing-solar-to-cut-expensive-power-bills--4510058

          Solar energy is the cheapest source even though installation seems to be quite expensive. People should install them.
