KENYA – Brookside, a dairy processing company in Kenya, has commissioned a state-of-the-art solar system for Kapsitwet Dairy Coop, in a significant step towards sustainable dairy farming,

This landmark initiative is set to revolutionize the way this dairy cooperative operates while demonstrating a strong commitment to environmental responsibility.

Kapsitwet Dairy Coop, nestled in the picturesque landscape of Kapsitwet, Kenya, has been a vital contributor to the local dairy industry for decades.

With a mission to ensure quality dairy products while minimizing their ecological footprint, the coop eagerly embraced the opportunity to harness the power of the sun.

With the sun now supplying a significant portion of the coop’s energy needs, Kapsitwet Dairy Coop is set to achieve a substantial degree of energy independence. This translates to more reliable operations and reduced vulnerability to power shortages.

The implementation of solar power is expected to result in substantial cost savings for the dairy cooperative.

Reduced electricity bills will undoubtedly bolster their financial stability, enabling further investments in dairy farming infrastructure and quality improvement.
