The OVO Foundation has announced that is expanding its energy access project in Kenya, electrifying over 300 schools and health clinics in the hardest-to-reach parts of Kenya.
Project Jua builds on its 2017 pilot, in which the OVO Foundation installed 20 solar systems in two of the poorest counties in Kenya: Turkana and Kilifi. The success of this pilot demonstrates the cost-effectiveness of delivering off-grid solar and storage on a relatively small scale in the development sector.
Project Jua is now expanding to five counties where electrification is far below the national average of 56%, including:
OVO Foundation is the sole funder of the project, and is supported by 80,000+ OVO Energy customers who donate each month by adding at least 25p to their monthly statement. OVO Foundation will again partner with Energy 4 Impact to deliver the project, which shares a vision of creating a better quality of life for everyone through access to clean energy.
