Safi Power has handed over phase I of the Njoro Canning Solar Power installation which has a plant capacity of 900 kWh. On final completion, the facility will have an annual energy generation of 1,387,996kWh reducing carbon footprint by 3,680 tonnes over twenty years (184 tonnes per year).

Mr. T. K. Patel the Chairman complimented Safi Power for the prompt implementation while appreciating the level of power cost that the plant will reduce. Njoro Canning Factory was established in 1978 and its continued success is as a result of hard work, effective investment and great support from staff and other stakeholders.

“We aim to continue developing the local and regional market network as well as implement food safety system standards in line with emerging technology and consumer demands. Adopting renewable energy sources helps us transition into these plans and reduce emissions which is our way of looking out for our environment,” said Mr. Patel

Based in Nakuru, the food processing company specializes in canned, frozen and dehydrated vegetables, spices, jams, desserts, relishes and pickles. Njoro Canning operates under 3 main brands, Golden Valley, Kenya Orchards and Mua Hills and markets 43 different products.

 “The manufacturing sector continues to be one of the key users of power whereby cost saving remains very critical to the final production costs” Eng. Arthur Oduor of Safi Power. In Kenya, 26% of installed capacity is form fossil fuels which is still very expensive. Pivoting from fossil fuels to renewable energy is the best strategy and Njoro Canning has established a leadership position in taking advantage of the solar infrastructure.
