Homa Bay County has potential for wind power generation because it is endowed with hills and the lake which is windy. The wind power speed has been tested and passed the minimum requirement of 5.5. The potential areas are in Rachuonyo, Suba and Mbita Sub-counties. Wind power turbines can generate up to 20MW which will be evacuated in to the national grid. The project will benefit the community through road openings, employment opportunities and opening up of the area. It will also contribute to a cleaner environment and increase energy supply in the whole of Kenya.This will go a long way to avail energy to the people and, in turn, lower the energy costs which are very high currently. Kenya power will purchase the generated power and then inject in to the national grid.
