The Kenya Off-grid Solar Access Project (KOSAP) has embarked on extensive training of county government staff on various technical aspects of implementing solar power projects and related operational activities.

The training sessions that commenced last week, cover a variety of topics: Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Systems; Distribution Network Design; Energy Regulation, Metering, Electricity Tariffs and Pricing; as well as Environment and Social Impact Assessments.

They are meant to ensure that those working on KOSAP are equipped with the necessary technical skills and knowledge.

The courses, whose periods vary based on the knowledge area being covered, are targeting about 100 participants in this phase, while the trainers are drawn from the Multimedia University of Kenya (MMUK), Kenya Power Institute of Energy Studies and Research (IESR) and Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT).
