Why Kenyans Needs to invest in solar energy

Last night Kenya and Uganda were plunged into darkness following a blackout in major towns. The power outage comes months after a similar blackout was experienced in Kenya but this time Kenya went down with Uganda.  Kenya power and The utility firm in Uganda confirmed on their twitter. 

It just about the time we invest in solar farming and other sources of renewable energy, I thought should highlight the benefits of solar energy because it is readily available. 


There are many reasons why you should go solar, but improving the environment and cutting energy costs are the most common. Whether your motivations for going solar are economic, environmental, or personal here is why you should go solar. 

  • Reduce your electric bills 
  • Increase your property value – Realtors whose homes are fully equipped with solar systems are rated highly in the price tags 
  • Protect the environment – Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. The burning of fossil fuels releases harmful toxins into the earth’s atmosphere, and drilling for geothermal energy could lead to earthquakes. However, one of the most important benefits of solar energy is that it does not harm the earth.
  • Sustainability – The sun generates 10,000 times more energy than the earth needs annually and using this energy does not affect the performance of the sun therefore solar energy is a clean source of energy that has a much lower environmental impact than conventional energy technologies.
  • Finally, One of the benefits of solar energy that many people appreciate the most is that it is available off the national grid. In other words, people can become self-sufficient and enjoy all of the power they need for their homes and businesses and avoid all this mess of national blackouts.  

Always remember technology does not cost money it saves money.

Tree – Glass House

You are probably reading this post from a capital city or minor cities across the globe, I can guess what you hate Traffic jams! Right ? We all want peace and comfortable life away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

A Kazakhstani architect  came up with a contemporary house design that has a mature fir tree enclosed at the centre of this conceptual tubular glass house

It was first designed in 2013 and before ground breaking the investors of the project pulled out. It features a completely glazed and cylindrical structure to give 360-degree-views of a forest setting.

A few years later a glass and solar panel manufacturer got interested,   according to Almassov, so construction could be imminent.

By the way, have you read about Our SMART FLOWER SOLAR PANELS?

The glazed walls and ceiling will reveal four narrow ring-shaped floors, as well as a spiralling white staircase that wraps around the trunk of the tree.


Glazed balustrades with wooden railings will surround the atrium

An entire glass shower cubicle mirrors the tubular form of the building, while other parts of the conceptual residence are seen dressed with freestanding furniture that follows the curving walls.
