Homa Bay County set for hyacinth generated electricity

Posted on November 2, 2017


A firm is set to apply for a hyacinth power generation license in the coming days.

In a notice in a section o newspapers, Homa Bay Biogas One Ltd says it will set up the generator at Kobala, Homa Bay.

The biogas plant will utilize hyacinth harvested from Lake Victoria to produce 8 mega watts of electricity.

“This will then be fed into the national grid if granted the license” Homa Bay Biogas One Ltd says in the notice.

The application will be filled with the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) on the 23rd November.

This will be the second biogas plant to feed into the national grid. In January, Naivasha based The Gorge Farm Energy Park, said it would be selling 2 mega watts of biogas generated electricity to the national grid.

Gorge Farm is owned by Vegpro Group, a fresh vegetable and flowers exporter in Kenya.

The company’s independent power producer Biojoule Kenya signed a purchase agreement with Kenya Power in 2016.

It generates power by utilizing plant stocks
