The Mbogo Valley Tea factory in the heart of rural Nandi County in cool, wet climates ideal for tea production. However, they are at the end of a power transmission line, which means that, previously, they have been the recipients of low power quality at an expensive rate. Their new onsite solar PV system helps the factory reduce its power costs with the direct support of battery. This decreases loss of product and productivity, stabilising local financial security. Their exposure to carbon-emitting technologies is lessened, and thus their burden of disease form respiratory-related illnesses caused by particulate matter.
