Nyangweta Village Solar Energy Access and Sustainable Mobility Project (Kenya)


Titre : Nyangweta Village Solar Energy Access and Sustainable Mobility Project (Kenya)

Pays : Kenya

Numéro projet : KEN/SGP/OP6/Y3/STAR/CC/2020/67

Domaine : Biodiversity

Durée : 5/2020 — 7/2021

Bénéficiaire : Sustainable Energy Foundation Africa

Nyangweta village, in Kisii County, Kenya is home to 2,500 residents comprising of households and small business owners. Administrively the project lies in Etago Division, South Mugirango Constituency in Kisii County. The village predominant source of energy is firewood and kerosene. It has been shown that continued use of firewood and kerosene results in indoor pollution leading to deaths due to respiratory illness. The project will cover Maosa, Botabori, Kiagware sub-villages. Nyangweta River flows through the village and has sufficient capacity to provide a clean energy for a village mini-grid. SUSEFA supported Kuza Energy to undertake pre-feasibility studies and identified two (2) sites with a capacity of producing 1000kW of electricity (500kW each). The sites have the capacity to provide clean energy access to 1500 residents and power productive energy use activities. Excess generated power (550kW) shall be sold to the national grid under a power purchase agreement (PPA) with thenational power distribution utility, KPLC. While 1500 residents can be reached with the mini-grid, 1000 residents out of the radius of the minigrid will be left out. SUSEFA is therefore partnering with Kuza, Sunspot and Sunpawa to provide a complete clean energy access solution to the village. This proposal seeks funding to solar energy powered clean transport option and provide stand-alone solar PV systems and lanterns for 1000 residents who will not be reached by the mini-grid. The target population is a community of 10,000 people (2500 households). Demographics of the target population is as follows2 o Children and teens 0-17 years-4500 o Youth 18-30 years-3500 o Adults 31-50 years-1250 o Mature- 50 and above- 750 o The ratio of female to male in the village is 49% and 51% respectively
