ABOUT MAGIRO MINI HYDRO POWER
We deliver affordable, sustainable and reliable access to electricity.
Magiro Power delivers affordable access to electricity for individuals, businesses and communities that are not connected to the main grid.
We build and operate small hydro power plants and offer a tailor made service that allows our customers to fully leverage the transformative development potential of electricity.
Our current operations are focused on the electrification of Murang'a county. We are partnering to further expand in the near future the access to affordable electricity far beyond the current projects.
These electricity hubs are easy to install along a riverbed and offer a competitive package for communities and businesses waiting on the larger scale projects to reach them.
We believe that electricity can be the engine towards welfare and growth in rural Africa. Check out how Magiro Power has enabled our customers and local communities!
About small hydro power
Small Hydropower is the most sustainable, efficient and affordable energy source. Small hydropower is a great solution to help Kenyans meet their growing energy demands.
“Potential for small hydropower generation in Kenya is estimated at 3,000 megawatts. Less than 30 megawatts has been exploited.”
– World Wildlife Fund
HYDRO POWER POTENTIAL
Why Mini Hydro Power?
EFFICIENT and RELIABLE- A river flows constantly, generating electricity 24 hours a day as opposed to solar energy which produces energy for only half of the time. As a renewable power source, Hydropower is more reliable and affordable source than fossil fuels that are rapidly being depleted.
COST EFFECTIVE - Mini hydropower has limited installation and maintenance costs which allows us to sell electricity to our customers at an affordable rate.
LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT - Hydropower is fueled by water, so it's a clean fuel source, meaning it won't pollute the air like power plants that burn fossil fuels, such as coal or natural gas. The water that is running through the turbines in the power plant flows fully back at the initial quality into the river.
SHORTER INSTALLATION TIME - Unlike large hydropower installation procedures, mini hydro is a pragmatic solution, requires less red tape and shorter installation time.
