Kenya Tea Development Agency Power (KTDA) has received a USTDA grant to fund a feasibility study to be carried out by K&M.
K&M’s feasibility study will explore the viability of solar power and energy storage at KTDA’s planned tea factories. With the high cost of power in Kenya, incorporating solar will likely reduce factory operating costs. Alfonso Guzman, President of K&M Advisors, commented “K&M is honored to have been selected as advisor to KTDA Power on this project and looks forward to helping Kenyan tea farmers expand their use of renewable energy. K&M is also pleased to continue its successful collaboration with USTDA to promote U.S. exports to Kenya.”
