GE is committed to sustainable power generation in Kenya. In September 2013, GE signed the first Wind Deal in Africa for the Kinangop Wind Farm under the Vision 2030 Kenya Power Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in the renewable energy space. GE will supply 38 1.6 MW turbines and provide maintenance for the wind farm for 10 years through a service agreement with the Kinangop Wind Farm at a total value of $ 58 million. GE has invested $ 2 million in project development for the Kipeto Wind Farm which, when completed, will deliver 100MW to the national grid.

GE and Safaricom, Kenya’s leading mobile provider have partnered to adopt the GE Durathon battery technology, one of the first batteries in the world designed specifically for Charge Discharge Cycling (CDC) telecomm operators. The Durathon batteries capacitate the Safaricom network to run efficiently during power outages.
