WaEn project #2

Project Description

The Ringiti island is in Lake Victoria, two and a half hours by boat from Mbita, near Kenya's southwest border. Ringiti's 10,000 residents had no other source of power other than kerosene, petrol, and disposable batteries until 2018. In 2022 Grino water purification system is added to the mini-grid and provide water and energy for the population. The main benefits of this project are: creating community access to affordable clean water, increasing the use of clean solar energy (Productive Use of Energy), lowering the load on minigrid batteries and improving the frequency stability of the grid, and finally adding a new revenue stream to support the viability of the minigrid.
