    Chelsea Harvey, October 20, 2015 (Washington Post)

    “…[Google’s newest renewables investment will be a wind power project in Kenya that, when completed, will be the continent’s biggest…The Lake Turkana Wind Power Project, which broke ground in July, is expected to generate…15 percent of the country’s electricity consumption…[It] will include 365 wind turbines, spread along the shore of Kenya’s Lake Turkana…Vestas, a global wind energy company, will be in charge of installing the turbines (likely early next year) and will also provide maintenance for the farm for 15 years…Google’s investment will be to buy [the 12.5% Vestas] stake once the project goes online, which is planned for 2017…The project is billed as the largest single private investment in Kenya’s history…[It will also] be one of the most efficient wind farms in the world, operating with a capacity factor (its actual energy output, as opposed to its potential energy output) of 60 percent, whereas many other wind farms have a capacity factor of less than 35 percent…[T]he project is expected to save the country more than $113 million per year in imported fuel costs…” click here for more
