SkyPower recently signed a landmark US $2.2 billion agreement with the Government of Kenya during the 6th annual Global Entrepreneurship Summit to develop 1 GW of solar projects. As part of this historic moment for Kenya, Skypower is pleased to announce it will be gifting two million SkyPower Home solar kits to the people of Kenya.

SkyPower, under the guidance of the Government of Kenya, will distribute two million solar kits to homes and working families across the nation currently without access to electricity. The portable SkyPower Home solar kits include a solar panel and an inverter to help Kenyans harness the power of the sun. The home solar kits include LED bulbs, a fan, USB charging capabilities and a radio that will be powered and recharged by the sun. SkyPower Home solar kits will help Kenya's citizens leapfrog towards greater energy access and increase the standard of living as a whole.

"This collaboration between SkyPower and the Government of Kenya makes me proud to be a Kenyan," said Anwar Hussein, Managing Director for SkyPower Kenya. "The donation of 2 million SkyPower Home solar kits will make a positive impact on Kenyan families, and help Kenya's economic momentum."
