The County Executive Committee Member for Water, Irrigation, Sanitation, Energy, Environment, Natural Resources, and Climate Change, Dr. Sam Kotut, hosted officers from the County Energy Department and the Rural Electrification and Renewable Energy Corporation on Friday in his office.

Dr. Kotut praised the officers from the Energy section for their dedication, especially during the recent launch of the Stima Mashinani project in Karuna/Meibeki by Governor Dr. Jonathan Bii EGH. He made this statement while receiving the mapping report of the villages that need to be connected to electricity. The mapping team is led by Director Dr. Silas Letting.

“Thank you for compiling the report and submitting it in record time. It shows your commitment to electrifying the villages,” said Dr Kotut.

He also acknowledged the Governor’s commitment to ensuring that all households receive electricity, as outlined in his manifesto under Nguzo No 7.

“As we implement these projects, let us pay close attention to the impact they have on our residents,” added Ms. Mary Kerich, the Chief Officer for Energy, Environment, Natural Resources, and Climate Change.

According to Dr Letting, the report indicates that 210 transformers are required to cover all the villages in Uasin Gishu.

A joint committee has been established for the design stage, emphasizing collaborative efforts between the County and REREC to enhance energy accessibility in Uasin Gishu.
