Kenya Solar Water Farm Project
About the project
The GivePower project in Kenya aims to provide safe drinking water to thousands of households in the coastal regions through the use of solar-powered desalination plants. CO2balance has partnered with GivePower, a non-profit organization, to address the unsafe water problems in the country by installing the solar-powered desalination plants in Kenya. So far, three plants are operating with six more being commissioned to extend to other counties. Carbon finance for this project assists with the ongoing maintenance and operational costs to run the plants, making it more sustainable.
