Kenya Nut Company Limited is one of the leading nut processors in the world operating in Kenya for 46 years. The company employs more than 2.500 workers in macadamia and cashew nut processing. Their recently-implemented solar plants will, at their peak, cover 100% of energy needs. Alongside carbon reductions and health benefits afforded by this energy switch, the use of solar stabilises infrastructure and increases profitability. Access to reliable energy results in expansion for the local agricultural industry, as well as tourism – which makes up a large part of the country’s GDP.
